Washington set to remodel Husky Stadium for $250 million

In November, Washington will begin a $250 million remodeling of Husky Stadium.

6% of the stadium will be premium seating, which UW officials expect will bring in $6 million annually. 25 suites will be sold between $35,000 - $75,000 per suite, although a five to ten year commitment will be required.

According to the Seattle Times, “The plan calls for the entire lower bowl and south-side upper deck to be demolished and reconstructed. About 4,000 premium seats will be built on the south side.”

Already a terrific venue for college football, Washington plans to make alcohol sales available for holders of premium seats.

The project will force Washington to play the 2011 Apple Cup and the entire 2012 season at Quest Field, the home of the Seattle Seahawks. The first game in the remodeled Husky Stadium will be on September 7, 2013. UW will host Boise State.

Sark is reportedly fired up.
