When you have the success that Chris Petersen has had at Boise, you are making the jump to the Big East, and you've got the most recognizable turf in the country, adding onto your stadium is the next logical step.
The multi phase project will significantly add to the seating capacity of the stadium, going from about 35,500 to about 53,000 when all is said and done. The addition in the north end zone will replace the current bleachers with a wall of over 13,00 seats complete with a two story football facility located underneath the grandstand.
The football facility will house the coaches' offices, meeting rooms and new weight room facility. As the last phase of the project, the south end zone would be filled in, and additional suites will be provided on the east side of the stadium.
