BELOIT (WKOW) -- The Riverbend Stadium Authority announced Monday that construction on the downtown Beloit stadium that will play home to the minor league Snappers baseball team has begun.
Groundbreaking begins as all agreements, including Ground Lease with the City of Beloit, site plan, and architectural approval have been finalized. The stadium is targeted for completion on June 14, 2021.
Located on seven total acres between the Rock River and Beloit Transfer Facility near the Beloit City Hall building, and just north of Shirland Avenue, the 3,800 capacity venue will serve as a community facility focused on providing youth, educational and cultural events, in addition to its plans to host Beloit’s minor league baseball team.
The stadium will feature a grandstand with administrative offices and player facilities, concessions and restrooms, and a 300+ capacity "stadium club" that can be used year-round. Outdoor group areas will be located in left field and right field with a kid’s playground and inflatable area planned for the outfield concourse.
The stadium will also include an artificial turf field that will allow flexibility to host other non-baseball events in the community.
New surface parking lots will be provided to the north and south of the stadium.
