Mayor Victorino releases statement on possible use of War Memorial Stadium for UH football games

Regarding possible use of War Memorial Stadium for UH football games or other events with Aloha Stadium placed in a “temporary moratorium,” Mayor Michael Victorino said:

“I am open to entertaining the notion of War Memorial Stadium hosting UH football games. It would be a great opportunity for our local college football fans to cheer the Rainbow Warrior football team here at home on Maui. 

“War Memorial hosted a UH football game in 2001 and Hula Bowl games from 1998 to 2005. So, we know games of this caliber have been played here – with national TV coverage. I am willing to expedite stadium improvements to accommodate better seating, lighting or expanded concession areas, in order to host UH games here.

“This would be a great opportunity for our keiki and our local sports community not only to experience NCAA Division I football, but also a chance for local nonprofits and sports clubs to raise funds through stadium concession sales.”
