Temple will soon be taking one of the earliest steps in its quest to build an on-campus football stadium.

A source familiar with the process said that on Tuesday, the executive committee of Temple's Board of Trustees will conduct a vote on appropriating funds for a stadium architect.

If it is approved then Temple can reach out to architects for bids on designing the stadium.

In October, The Inquirer reported that Temple's goal is to build a 35,000-seat stadium at an estimated cost of $100 million. The stadium would be situated at the northwest corner of campus, about a block or two behind the Liacouras Center.
