Nebraska's Memorial Stadium Now Fourth-Largest In Big Ten After $63.5M Renovation
Published August 23, 2013
MISSION ACCOMPLISHED: The AP's Dave Skretta noted AECOM on Thursday announced that the renovation of the west side of Kansas State Univ.'s Bill Snyder Family Stadium "finished on schedule." Construction had to "be squeezed into eight months in order to be ready" for KSU's opener Aug. 30 against North Dakota State. The "renovation resulted in new premium seating, improved media and broadcast facilities, the addition of the K-State Athletics Hall of Honor and other amenities." It also "doubled the amount of field lighting to meet NCAA national standards for high-definition TV broadcasts." An additional 250,000 square-foot facility includes "new suites and loge seating, retail locations and expansive concession and restroom facilities that also can be utilized by fans sitting in the preexisting bowl portion of the stadium" (AP, 8/22).
