LIVONIA, MICH. – Madonna University Director of Athletics Noel Emenhiser announced to football players, parents, and supporters that the Crusaders football program would continue to play its home games at Livonia Public Schools facilities. Emenhiser indicated that while Madonna University administrators and athletics department and football coaching staff have worked diligently to bring a stadium to campus, unfortunately the project has been terminated.

“The education, personal growth, and positive competitive experiences of our student-athletes are our top priorities,” Emenhiser said. He also committed that the University and the athletics department will continue to pursue a path toward a home venue that will meet the needs of Madonna, the athletics department, and the football program.

Madonna University administrators are grateful for the sacrifice of time, effort, and energy from the football program, coaching staff, and community as they work to build a championship program.
