Memphis' Liberty Stadium is set to welcome some major renovations.
The decision comes after the university spent the last several months deciding between a building a new stadium and significant renovations.
Ultimately, the decision was made to renovate the current stadium, but from the renderings, when all is said and done it's going to look like a whole new venue.
Today, the city of Memphis those plans to modernize the football stadium with an estimated cost of between $150 million - $200 million
“We started this process with a specific set of transformational goals in mind, and this renovation hits all of them,” Memphis VP and Director of Athletics Laird Veatch shared in a release. “It will demonstrate our commitment to sustainable competitive and recruiting success, provide a tremendous, upgraded fan experience and secure positive long-term economic impacts for our University and City, all while taking advantage of the current stadium infrastructure and the investments already underway at Liberty Park.”
The new project will include a "transformation" of the west side of the stadium that will include premium seating options, family boxes on the north end for a party deck patio on the south end for students.
Also included in the renovation will be what they are calling a "hospitality experience" within the halo that will surround the stadium.
Construction is expected to be wrapped up in time for kickoff to the 2025 season.
