Lafayette J&C article yesterday talked about MJB and how he wants to renovate the south end zone of the stadium... It said that the panel who listened to proposals favored one that set up club seating in place of the 7,000 seats that are there currently.
They favored an option featuring an indoor club with rooftop terrace seating below a video board that stretches nearly from sideline to sideline. Decorative bridges would connect the terrace seating with stands in the stadium's southeast and southwest corners. Also included were installation of a new sound system and a second video board, approximately two-thirds the size of the one currently in the south end zone, in the north horseshoe. The loss of the 7,000 bleacher seats currently in the south end zone, combined with the added terrace seating, would reduce Ross-Ade's capacity of 62,500 by about 5,000.
I like the sound of this renovation, and it later goes on to discuss how MJB believes that, one day in the future, an upper level will need to be added to the east side of the stadium. For sure, I am glad that he is taking steps to improve facilities!
