Temple has taken another step forward on a new football stadium in North Philadelphia with the hiring of two architecture firms to design the 35,000-seat facility.
The winning firms are AECOM and Moody Nolan, according to the Sports Business Journal. Two AECOM architects, Steve Terrill and Brian Pounds, recently designed Florida Atlantic University's eponymous stadium, which opened in 2011.
Craig Angelos, Temple's deputy athletic director, oversaw FAU Stadium's construction before departing the university in 2012. In fact, Temple played at FAU Stadium this year for the Boca Raton Bowl, and university officials toured the venue.
Moody Nolan is also designing Temple's new indoor practice facility next to the stadium site.
Temple's board authorized $1 million in funding in February for a design and environmental impact study of the stadium, which would go up between Broad and 16th streets, and Montgomery Avenue and Norris Street. Get more details at PBJ.com.
