- 1 of the video boards in my attachment will be going up in each corner of dome. 2 will be done by start of season with the other 2 added after the season.

- The east and west concourses are being widened and outdoor bars will be built on top for club level use.

- Video ribbon boards are being added to each level. They will wrap around the stadium.

- Upgraded wifi and a complete replacement of the audio equipment.

- Main concourse outside has been remodeled to allow for more outside entertainment for pre and post games.

- Locker rooms upgraded

- Complete replacement of the lighting inside stadium.

This comes after the 60 million dollar upgrades for the Final 4 in 2018 & nearly an additional 10 million dollars from the Valero Bowl. DT San Antonio also just approved two very large & unique looking condos that are close by. Improving the look of downtown. There will also be a walkway from the riverwalk area to the stadium which is on the opposite side of the highway. Very good progress.

I am not sure if this means it will be called the HEB Alamodome

No. HEB purchased rights for the North Plaza only. Stadium will still be called Alamodome.

• WKU's newer side was designed to support a 15,000 seat upper deck
• Club section can be expanded to full length of stadium with 400 to 500 seats
• Current grass bank end zones can have 1500 seats
• Open end zones has a design for 5000 seats with a colonnade that replica the original stadium that is on top of the hill

This would bring capacity to 44,500.

THIS needs to be done. Not only would it be beautiful, but that open endzone with no scoreboard just makes the stadium look "small time" (especially on TV)

We are expanding our stadium at the end of this year. Bringing capacity to around 53,000.

As an outsider here are my suggestions.
ODU: Game plan is good for their new stadium
Marshall: I would chair back entire stadium in green chair backs. Then I would increase luxury seating above the stands on both sides of the field.
Southern Miss: Chair back the entire stadium in gold chair backs (similar to Pittsburgh). I would then add more seating above the new luxury seating with chair backs as well and a large video board in the middle. That should keep capacity about the same but creating nicer seating and keeping more sound in the stadium and making the stadium to appear much larger.
Rice: Chair entire stadium in Navy seating. Take down one upper deck and build mutlple leavles of luxury seating. With their deep pocket alumi and location in Houston they could get fans in luxury seating.

Someone wants a cookie.

Instead of being jealous, I would put the pressure on our Administration to get it just half as together as ECU. We used to be near equals with them, they are now LIGHTYEARS ahead of us. While we are sitting here closer to the FCS than the G5 in talent, facilities, and how we run a program...they are striving to get their program and facilities P5 ready. The gap is so far between us and the AAC it would take us 20 years of steady progress to catch up to most of those teams.

Agree... Carolina LC has always been a pretty cool customer over here and I don't think he meant anything by what he posted. I found it interesting and informative. We should be following the ECU model....problem is we are about 15 million short.

Looks like it will be 45,000 seats with the ability to go to 55,000 with temporary seating. This will be huge for our program.

RE: Conference USA Football Stadiums
Until someone sells out their stadium routinely, why expand? Like a WKU poster said, focus on the game day experience to keep fans coming. Marshall has 39K seats. We need maybe 32 max. Although we had 39K for UL and 36K for Purdue two years ago. We may get 35K for NC State this coming fall unless our AD decides to gouge the fans.

RE: Conference USA Football Stadiums
I would like to see Marshall tear down the erector set end zone seats and add a party deck/beer garden, a concession stand for outside vendors, and restrooms. Then add a deck to the at least the east side bleachers. That way we would stay at about the same capacity, but the the stadium would look a hell of a lot better....

I want Charlotte to add some suites and make the beer garden a more permanent fixture. It was a great idea with good success in year one. I hope we build on it.

Building costs skyrocketed and forced the plans to change. We built what we could afford with the help of a 5 million $ gift from the Wendy's god

Let me clarify this "popular vote" situation regarding USM. The USM administration along with county and city officials discussed and laid out an athletic complex plan that included softball, tennis, & various recreational facilities that would be built on USM property and owned by the school. This was about 15yr ago and it would have been under complete USM supervision in their recreational department but when available could be coordinated with and used by the schools in their relationship with USM. Had nothing to do with suites at the football stadium, etc. The facility would have been paid for by the passing of a 1% tax on restaurant food, hotels, and motels but was rejected by the voters.
