Bank Independent Stadium

Bank Independent Stadium is the culmination of a vision – a vision that began almost 50 years ago when the University of North Alabama leadership believed in the institution, its students, its faculty, its staff, and, perhaps, most importantly, its community. Today, the stage is set for that vision to come to life with the transformative nature of the on-campus Bank Independent Stadium. By its very nature, a stadium brings people together to champion a common cause, and there is no question that, whether a football or baseball game, a soccer match, or a concert, Bank Independent Stadium will do just that – now and for generations to come. We welcome this historic and transformational next step as North Alabama steps into its place in history.

The project entered the design phase in June of 2023, with a public announcement on the UNA turf practice field at the Bill Jones Athletic Complex. In December of 2023, UNA entered into an agreement with HPM and Davis Architects, both out of Birmingham, to manage and design the project. In March of 2024, the UNA Board of Trustees authorized an early construction package to build a multi-purpose turf practice field at Cox Creek Park – the UNA Spring Sports Complex at Cox Creek. Additionally, an early bid package was released for baseball stadium design and all groundwork as well as public at the Bank Independent Stadium site. On June 14, the UNA Board of Trustees approved the design, scope, timeline, and budget model, which paved the way for groundbreaking. A final bid package is scheduled to be released in September 2024. Contingent upon construction time, the potential opening season would be 2026-2027.
