USNH Board of Trustees Approves Plan for Renovated UNH Athletic Complex

The renovated complex will replace Cowell Stadium and offer increased and improved seating in a new home grandstand on the west side to include state-of-the art broadcast and WiFi capability, concessions, restrooms, and a special student section. This summer lights are being installed and seating on the east side of the facility is being upgraded. LEARN MORE >>
