William B. Greene Jr. Stadium[3] is a football stadium on the campus of East Tennessee State University (ETSU) in Johnson City, Tennessee. The stadium is named after businessman and longtime ETSU supporter William B. Greene Jr. Located on the southwestern corner of campus at the foot of Buffalo Mountain, the new stadium is expected to have a seated capacity of over 7,000, plus standing room for an additional 3,000, and will cost roughly $26.615 million. The stadium is home to the newly resumed East Tennessee State Buccaneers football team, which played their 2015 and 2016 seasons at Kermit Tipton Stadium on the campus of Science Hill High School.
