Shaw University and St. Augustine's College, members of the CIAA conference, have hopes to provide a stadium for their football teams. Both being in close proximity downtown, it has been proposed that the two teams can share a stadium.

The location is not exactly set, but the stadium would seat 12,500 near downtown. It would also be used for occassional other events. The cost is estimated at about $35 million.

Although still under consideration, this proposal has met significant resistance, mostly due to issues with funding proposals. Current proposals have Wake County committing significant amounts of hotel and restaurant tax, which does not suit commissioners representing outlying areas of the city.
