Georgia (Jan 6, 2016) — StadiumJourney.com Ranks All 125 FCS Football Stadiums
KENNESAW, Ga. (Jan. 6, 2016) —Kennesaw State has only been playing football for one season, but it has already cracked the Top 10 nationally as Fifth Third Bank Stadium is listed No. 10 on StadiumJourney.com's Top 25 ranking of Football Championship Subdivision (FCS) stadiums.
The rankings take into account food and drink choices, atmosphere, neighborhood, fans,
access, return on investment, and special features.
The Owls played their inaugural season in 2015 and posted a 6-5 overall record, including a 5-1 mark at home.
"This Top 10 ranking is a great testament to all the hard work put forth by members of the athletics department, stadium employees, and the support provided by the university's administration," head coach Brian Bohannon said. "I can't tell you how phenomenal our fans were this season and how much energy they provided our players and coaches. Everyone from our fans, students, marching band, community and sponsor partners were instrumental in us posting a 5-1 home record and helping make Fifth Third Bank Stadium a special place to play.
"I want to thank our fans and staff, and congratulate them on providing the Kennesaw State football with one of the top FCS game day atmospheres in the country," Bohannon added.
Fifth Third Bank Stadium was one of three Big South Conference venues included in the Top 25, joining Coastal Carolina's Brooks Stadium (No. 6) and Spangler Stadium (Gardner-Webb) rated No. 18. With Coastal Carolina heading to the FBS level next season, Fifth Third Bank Stadium will rank as the top venue in the Big South Conference.
Montana's Washington-Grizzly Stadium topped the poll.
Season ticket renewals for the 2016 season will be sent out later this month with prices and The Owl Fund donation levels remaining the same as they were in 2015. Season tickets are priced at $99 per seat plus a donation to The Owls Fund.
