September 29, 2017, Tipp City, Ohio – The Tipp Pride Association Board of Directors announced today that the organization has received a $5,000 sponsorship from Abbey Credit Union for the construction of Tipp City’s new community stadium. The generous gift will continue the ongoing fundraising to support stadium construction.
Mashell Stith, president of TPA shared, “We are so thrilled to have Abbey Credit Union stepping up to support Tipp City in this way. Words cannot describe the energy this creates for our entire community.”
The new Tipp City stadium will be constructed at the location of the current stadium within City Park. Replacement of the field, stands, buildings and scoreboard are estimated to cost approximately 5.6 million dollars. Tipp Pride Association is seeking private funding for this project.
“We are extremely grateful for Abbey Credit Union’s generous gift for the new football stadium,” said J.D. Foust, Athletic Director for Tipp City Schools.
Tipp Pride Association intends to highlight significant donors and sponsors at each home football game this season. “There is no better place to provide recognition to donors than at the very same venue we are working to provide upgrades”, states Scott George, vice-president of TPA.
The new stadium will increase available seating for home, visitor, and band to 3,500.
With a successful fundraising campaign, the stadium project could begin construction at the end of the 2017 football season.
