Just days ahead of the most anticipated scrimmage yet at Blue Wahoos Stadium in downtown Pensacola, we’ve obtained the images of what the first gameday will look like overlooking Pensacola Bay.
The stadium will be the future home of the Argonauts when they play their inaugural season next fall. The UWF football team will hold its third intrasquad scrimmage this weekend. Check out the schedule for Saturday’s scrimmage and renderings below of the transformed Fetterman Field:
