(Lafayette, LA) - The largest philanthropic gift in Louisiana Ragin’ Cajuns Athletics history will deliver significant support for the planned renovation of Cajun Field. Our Lady of Lourdes Regional Medical Center has committed a $15 million gift over 15 years for the project, securing naming rights for the new home of Ragin’ Cajuns Football.

The completed project, Cajun Field at Our Lady of Lourdes Stadium, will provide the first major extensive renovation of the facility in its 50-year existence. Cajun Field opened in 1971.

"This transformational gift from Our Lady of Lourdes will play a pivotal role in the future of our campus community and Ragin’ Cajuns Athletics,” said Director of Athletics Bryan Maggard. “Our Lady of Lourdes is one of the most vital organizations in Lafayette, as well as across Acadiana, and we are extremely grateful to join in this partnership to create a first-class game day experience for Cajun Nation and our student-athletes."
