Richardson Stadium Expansion Advanced Planning Services


The project is for advance planning for the expansion and renovation of Jerry Richardson Stadium. 

The project will encompass a phased expansion of Jerry Richardson Stadium to include the addition of a four-story tower on the west side of the venue, as well as seating growth on both the east and west sides of the stadium. The tower would include large plaza and mezzanine donor/team spaces, as well as a dedicated suite level and a game operations level, to include coaches’ boxes, working media, TV and radio spaces, as well as separate Chancellor and Athletic Director’s suites. Seating would expand on both sides of the stadium, increasing capacity from just over 15,300 to over 30,600, effectively doubling the capacity of the venue.
