Demolish: The construction of the new stadium will begin at the end of of the 2011 football season with the demolition of the majority of the current structure.  This includes:

  • Lower bowl of stadium (40K seats, originally built in 1920)
  • Including the track
  • South side stands. (15K seats, built in 1950)

 

Build: Included in the plans are a brand new lower bowl replacing the original one built in 1920.  Husky fans should also expect:

  • New team meeting rooms 
  • New recruiting facilities
  • New coaches’ offices
  • 25 suites
  • 25 loge boxes
  • 2500 club seats

Capacity: The seating capacity has been said to remain "similar to the current capacity."

 

The development team has experience building football stadiums including Qwest Field, Sanford Stadium, Ben Hill Griffin, and Bobby Dodd Stadium.  Below I have compiled information about each of the structures.
