POMOCO Stadium, Christopher Newport University
POMOCO Stadium debuted in 2001, along with the Christopher Newport football program, and played host to CNU’s first game in history, against Salisbury on Sept. 1, 2001. Although the official capacity is listed at 4,200, a total of 6,135 crammed their way in through the use of portable stands and standing room to watch that initial contest. The Captains averaged 4,630 in 2001, ranking ninth in NCAA Division III attendance, and sold out all four home games. In 2002 they averaged 3,948 per game, including one in very inclement weather, and ranked eighth in Division III. In 2003 the stadium project was completed with the addition of brick facade, permanent concession stands and rest rooms, a large press box and beautiful President’s Suite. POMOCO Stadium has one of the finest grass playing surfaces in the South and has already been host to summer camps featuring many NFL players.
