WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WTHR) — Purdue University's Ross-Ade Stadium field is getting a new name.

Beginning with the 2020 football season it will be called Rohrman Field.

The naming is in response to the Bob Rohrman family's $15 million gift to support future improvements at the stadium. Those improvements include enhancing the stadium appearance, improving the gameday experience for fans, an open concourse, more diverse seating options and improved fan amenities.

Rohrman Field is scheduled to be dedicated at the Purdue football 2020 home opener Sept. 12 against Memphis.
