Bits Of Old NE Ohio Football Stadium To Be Sold


UPDATED: Monday October 14, 2013 8:56 AM

Goal posts, weathered bleachers, lockers, toilets and turf will be for sale this weekend as pieces of the University of Akron's old football stadium are auctioned off.

The team moved to InfoCision Stadium on campus in 2009. This year, the university sold the deteriorating Rubber Bowl to Team 1 Marketing of Canton for $38,000.

Auctioneer Glenn Witchey tells the Akron Beacon Journal that iron gates, food carts, sound systems and signs also are up for grabs Saturday.

Team 1's president says the biggest seller is expected to be the turf, which was appraised at $180,000.

The horseshoe-shaped facility was built in the late 1930s and is marred by graffiti, weeds and crumbling concrete.

The marketing company hopes to renovate it for use for football games, concerts and other events.
