UF explores other options for football stadium

The University of Findlay said Friday it is exploring other options for construction of a lacrosse and football stadium on campus, after the school severed ties with a company that was playing a big role in the project.
The university had been counting on iGoHD, an HD entertainment streaming company in Cincinnati, to establish online streaming and sponsorship opportunities for the stadium.
Plans called for the stadium to host eight live concerts a year that were to be managed and streamed by iGoHD.
However, iGoHD “is facing unexpected delays in the implementation of its business plan for the project, including the signing of sponsorships,” the university said Friday.
“As a result of the delays in the business plan, the university has ended its current affiliation with the company,” said Martin Terry, UF vice president for business affairs.
Brianna Patterson, media relations director at the university, said iGoHD was taking the lead on the stadium project, but because its plan fell through, the school will look in another direction to make the stadium become a reality.
No timeline has been set for the start of construction.

Courier sports reporter Brian Lester will  have more on Saturday.
