Recently, the State approved FIU’s plans for a medical school. Now, GlobeSt.com reports on FIU’s latest facilities expansion: its football stadium. The  university’s infant football program (winless last season) can look forward to playing in  a an impressive new football stadium.  With this expansion, FIU will be able to do what even UM has not, have a football stadium on the campus. The two phase plans will end up adding 45,000 seats (1,400 of the club level) to the stadium as well as a 6,500 sq. ft. Panther Club with 19 suites. Odebrecht, builders of the Performing Arts Center and MIA’s north and south terminal, have been contracted for the job.
