WICHITA, Kan. (KWCH) - Demolition is underway at Wichita State University’s Cessna Stadium, the beginning of a massive renovation project that’s transforming the near-80-year-old venue near 21st and Hillside.

In September, Wichita State released a rendering for its University Stadium project that involves tearing down the current Cessna Stadium and constructing a venue to accommodate more than 10,000 spectators and including a reconfigured eight-lane track and a space for a soccer field. Plans call for Wichita State to continue hosting the Kansas high school state track meets at the site.
