2014 - New Stadium

In November 2014, Prairie View A&M broke ground on Panther Stadium at Blackshear Field, a $60 million football stadium and athletic field house. Completed in summer 2016, the facility is 55,000 square feet and currently holds up to 15,000 people, but is expandable to 30,000 attendees. It features 12 private suites and a press box for media operations. Prairie View A&M hosted its first game on September 4, 2016, in front of a sold-out crowd, claiming victory in the Labor Day Classic over arch-rival Texas Southern, 29 to 25. Prairie View finished its inaugural season in its new home stadium with three wins and one loss.
