KCCI is reporting that there will be a joint announcement between Drake and the Des Moines Public schools later today. Apparently, there is speculation of a new football stadium east of The Knapp Center.

Just speculation right now.

????. Why would they need to do this? Drake Stadium is obviously old but it's charming and iconic. Too big for our football needs but fills up just fine for Relays.

Cityivew says Drake soccer and HS football. Drake football, I assume, would remain at the main stadium.

As discussed here, the soccer teams played most of their home games away from their actual stadium this year.

I would be very careful with interpreting too much from this CityView article. This column is much more conjecture than actual facts on a regular basis. I wouldn't get too excited until we see an official announcement somewhere else.

I believe this will be right across the street from the new development approved at the beginning of the year. What a great time to be a Bulldog.

What about the poor owners of the laundrymat? Or the poor folks who have refused to sell in the northeast corner of the block. SAD ... very sad!

I like how it comes with faux fans already in the seats. 

Drake needs to purchase about 12,000 of these by Saturday:

$39 on Amazon.com...but they're reusable, of course.

"The stadium is being configured to host football and soccer games. In addition, contingent upon fundraising, the stadium can accommodate a bubble to activate the facility during the winter months."

Although football won't play its games there, they might practice under the bubble.
