New Drury Arena

Drury University in Springfield, Mo., should have a new 3,100-capacity arena next year, funded completely by donations.

The new home for the school’s men’s and women’s basketball and volleyball teams has been named the O’Reilly Family Event Center, named after donors who pledged $6 million toward the $13.5 million project, according to the News-Leader.

A ceremonial groundbreaking is expected for mid-May and the on-campus facility is expected to be open next year.

The arena is expected to host major university and community events.
