Notre Dame Announces $400 Million Stadium Renovation Plans, Releases Video Renderings Of Expected Look
Last spring, the University of Notre Dame announced that it would be launching a study to determine possible renovations to Notre Dame Stadium to both improve the fan atmosphere and make the iconic building more accommodating for non-football events, such as classes, meetings, and conferences. Today, the school announced a $400 million renovation project that should begin within the next two years.
Per the school, here are the changes that fans can expect:
An additional 3,000 to 4,000 fans will cheer on the Fighting Irish once the Campus Crossroads project is complete.
Enhancements to Notre Dame Stadium include outdoor club-level seating within the east and west buildings. Additionally, terraces will adorn each of these buildings, allowing for a view of both campus and the playing field.
Fans will also enjoy modernized concession facilities and improved broadband coverage.
The existing press box will be completely removed and replaced by additional seating. The press box will move to the east side of the stadium. NBC Sports will continue to broadcast home football games from the west side of the stadium, however.
Enhancements to the south side of the stadium include a new scoreboard and a redesigned Frank Leahy Gate, creating a grand entrance to Notre Dame Stadium. No club-level seating is currently planned for the south side of the stadium.
The school also released a number of video renderings that detail different aspects of the renovation — can check them out below:
