OGDEN - Weber State University is hosting what it hopes will be a world-record groundbreaking ceremony for its new athletic complex by asking every fan at Saturday's season-opening football game to participate.

Each fan who enters Stewart Stadium for the game against South Dakota will have a chance to turn some dirt to celebrate the start of construction for the new complex, which will be located at the north end of the stadium.

Gates open at 4:30 p.m. The official groundbreaking ceremony begins at 5 p.m. and kickoff is at 6 p.m. Everyone who enters the stadium during that time will get a turn with a shovel.

The facility will include a new plaza, ticket office and souvenir shop and will serve as the main entrance to the stadium. Housed inside will be a state-of-the-art strength and conditioning facility for all Wildcat student athletes.

The facility will be ready for the start of the 2019 football season.
