Armstrong Stadium – Hampton Pirates

Depending on which gate you enter, your initial thoughts on Armstrong Stadium, home of the Hampton Pirates, may differ. Entering through the south gate, you will find a ticket booth in an older looking building, while if you walk in from the north, you will find the newer part of the stadium, with a nice brick facade housing the ticket booths and gates – a much more aesthetically pleasing experience.

William “Dick” Price Stadium – Norfolk State Spartans

When William “Dick” Price was leading the Norfolk State University football team to three CIAA championships, little did he know he was creating a legacy for himself that would one day result in his name adorning the home of the Spartans. Price coached the team for 10 seasons (1974-83) and had more success than any other, past or present. He was also the Athletic Director from 1989 until his retirement 10 years later.
