Your donor dollars at work

I tell you what — the coming south stands renovations at Sanford Stadium are impressive.  New bathrooms and new concessions are great.  Gate expansion is, too.  But honestly, they had me at this:

In case you can’t read the fine print, the concourse is being widened from 10-feet, 6 inches to 23 feet.

Color me a little jealous.

    If the south concourse is widening does that mean the current restrooms will be eliminated?


    • Ed Bodenhamer

      Yes, but they’re adding a total of 130 women’s toilets and 60 men’s toilets. Mostly clustered at Gates 9 and 6, but along the outer third of the concourse as well. More toilets, and very few eliminated from the center of the level, where the three family bathrooms and sensory room will be. On the 300 level, there will be 13 new women’s toilets, 12 new men’s toilets, and I new family toilet. They are going in what appears to be the dead space between the steps and the 333-336 sections.

    If I can get through Gate 9, I’m not far from my section; but I’ve been using 10 because of the logjam at 9. Looking forward to these updates.

    Restrooms that hold more than they do now would be great. When the Men’s Room backs up into the concourse it’s crazy. What goes on with the 300 level on the Southside???

    So what will be the net impact of this project on seating capacity, aside from the increase in luxury boxes/suites??


    • Ed Bodenhamer

      They haven’t released the net impact as far as new capacity goes. The only thing we know for sure is that there will be 10 new ADA seats, with the press area converted to suites/club quality seating like the area between the 300 and 600 levels. This will be done thanks to the addition of the press box at the end of the 300 level, basically an extension of the sky suites.

      Based on the area being converted to suites (and what happened when they did the same on the north side), along with the confirmed new ADA seating, we can expect a capacity increase somewhere around 500-800, for a new total in the ballpark of 93,250-93,500

    I would have been in the sensory room crying after the SC game in 2019
