Vines Center

During a recent news conference, Liberty University announced plans to build a new arena. It will be 125,000 square feet and will be attached to the Flames’ current arena. The new arena will be able to seat 4,000 people for sporting events. It will also be used for volleyball and basketball games. Supporter levels start at just $2 per month. The Vines Center is located on the campus of Liberty University.

The Vines Center is home to the annual Convocation ceremonies for Liberty University. These ceremonies are held on Wednesdays and Fridays at 10:30 AM and are mandatory for all students. The Vines Center recently underwent a major seating renovation. Blue plastic game seats replaced the old red-and-blue cushioned seats. A new video board is set up above the scoreboard. The basketball court is in phase two of renovations.

During the season, the Liberty University men’s hockey team opened their season with a sweep of the University of California-Penn. The Flames won the first game 5-3 and swept the second game 7-4. The Flames converted four power-play opportunities and shut out all four Cal-Penn penalty-kill chances. Clayton Pierce recorded 28 saves for Liberty. The team is ranked eighth in the country by D3H.

Williams Stadium

The Flames are back on the ice, but will they be able to beat the top FCS schools? That’s a question that’s on the minds of many. After all, they’ve made the jump from FCS to FBS in recent years, and their on-campus facilities were unmatched in the past. In addition to the Flames, big-name colleges will visit the stadium in the coming years. BYU, Virginia Tech, and North Carolina are just a few of the schools scheduled to visit Liberty’s Williams Stadium in the next decade.

After opening in 1989, Liberty University Athletics began work on a major renovation project for the stadium. The renovation plans include adding new seats and upgrades for nearly every non-student seat. Chairback seating will be added to all non-student seats on the West side and the upper east side. In addition, 23 new cabanas will be built in the south end zone above a newly graded berm. These improvements will provide additional seating for students, as well as overflow space.

In addition to tailgating, Liberty also offers a popular student section, where fans can watch games from the comfort of their seats. The game is a big deal for Liberty University’s community, and the university takes FBS football seriously. So, it’s worth the trip. If you can afford it, consider becoming a fan on Patreon. Guests can support the podcast through any level, from $2/month to $1000/year.
