BELOIT, Wis. – While COVID-19 concerns took away an opportunity for a public groundbreaking ceremony, work has begun on a 3,800 seat stadium in downtown Beloit.
The stadium, which will be home to Oakland A’s Single-A affiliate Beloit Snappers, will have a multitude of uses, including soccer, football, concerts and other events.
“This is a really big project,” said John Gackstetter, Senior VP of Development for Hendricks Commercial Properties. “It’s something that will serve as a catalyst to help the vibrancy in downtown Beloit.”
In the fall of 2019, the Snappers were sold to Gateway Baseball group, comprised of Florida-based philanthropist Quint Studer, who already owns a minor-league team in Pensacola.
Studer teamed with businesswoman Diane Hendricks, along with a small group of entrepreneurs, to form the Riverbend Stadium Authority, which was able to privately fund the stadium’s $35 million cost.FULL STORY
