Who We Are
Lane Stadium has been part of Virginia Tech’s history since the 1960s. Previously, the Virginia Tech Football team played their games at Miles Stadium, which stood on what is now a residential quad on campus. In 1964, Stuart Cassell proposed the idea to construct a new stadium to accommodate more fans in a prime location.
Construction began in 1964, once the project was funded. The new stadium was named after Edward H. Lane, who helped raise a significant amount for the project. The Hokies played their first game in Lane Stadium in 1965, but construction was not complete until 1968.
The biggest addition to the stadium happened in 2003, when they added on to the west side. The $52.5 million expansion included 23 luxury suites, a new press box and club seating. The President’s Club, located on the 4th floor, was part of the expansion. This is a space where the President of the University invites distinguished alumni, state officials, and other VIP guests to enjoy the game in a large, private area. This space remained empty other than home games. Beginning in 2021, ClubCorp will bring the space to life the rest of the year by introducing the University Club of Virginia Tech to Lane Stadium. The Club will be open to Members only to dine, celebrate and connect.
You Belong Here
Beyond the amenities, the aesthetics and the observable benefits, it will be the intangibles that complete the club experience – the sense of belonging, the way the staff will anticipate not only your needs but also your wants, the way other Members will welcome your presence, not to mention the enduring friendships that will be established along the way – these are the attributes that will make the University Club of Virginia Tech your home away from home and your office away from the office.
