On Thursday, the Liberty University Athletics Department announced it was moving its home opening football game against St. Francis, Pa., to Lynchburg City Stadium. Today, the Department has announced the game time has been changed to a Noon kickoff on Sept. 4. The game was originally scheduled to be played at 7 p.m. and at Liberty's Williams Stadium, home of the Flames for the past 21 years. However, due to continued renovations to the stadium, which includes 7,200 additional seats and a state-of-the-art press tower, the game had to be moved across town to a site where Liberty previously hosted its home event. Liberty started its football program in 1973. The program played a majority of its home games at Lynchburg's historic City Stadium until 1989, when Liberty opened up Williams Stadium on Oct. 21, 1989, against Towson State.
The Liberty University Athletics Department is scheduled to release additional information about the game, including season and single game ticketing information, Flames Club events and parking, on Monday.
