WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) — Wilmington City Council is considering whether to spend money on upgrades at Legion Stadium.

On the council’s agenda tonight is a proposal to replace the stadium’s sound system and scoreboard. The total cost of the project is $115,000. The city’s share is $33,333. New Hanover County and New Hanover County Schools would each pay $33,000. The other $15,000 would come from private donations, including $10,000 from the Wilmington Hammerheads, who are one of the stadium’s primary tenants.
