The City of Hampton budgeted $1.5 million in its fiscal year 2023 budget for the project.

The roughly 8,00-seat stadium on Victoria Road was first opened in 1929 and hosts an array of football, track and field and marching band events, including football home games for Hampton’s four high schools. The current version of the stadium opened in 1987.
