Stadium improvements

Recommended Posts



What could they possibly do if the cost is going to be "well in excess" of $250 million? That's like building an entire new stadium. Are they looking to completely renovate the entire thing?

Probably going to also include some parking plan, because they are going to have to address that as the city is quickly using up all available surface lots for other projects.

So you can check on your fantasy team, and twitter about the game and facebook your friends; everything but actually watch the game.

some spoiled pricks lol... i get to see maybe 2 live football games a year, the rest i sit at home and watch on TV and check all my fantasy stuff. i take full advantage of screaming, getting excessively drunk and soaking in the atmosphere when i get to go...

$250M is peanuts for this sort of thing. Chicago Bears stadium upgrades were like $600M although thet was a bigger project.

Cal Bears renovated their stadium for $321M. Here is what they got:

  • Modernized fan amenities, including wider concourses and additional restrooms and concession areas on the west side
  • New wheelchair seating with better accessibility and access around the stadium
  • Restoration of the historic façade, including repairing damaged concrete and application of a new finish to match the original 1923 appearance
  • Modernized public address and lighting system
  • Restored flagpoles atop the stadium rim
  • State-of-the art scoreboards with enhanced video and graphics capabilities within the existing structures at the north and south ends of the stadium
  • Endowment Seating Program area (approximately 3,000 seats) that includes chair-back seating and access to three club levels (Field Club, Stadium Club and University Club)
  • Benches with backs and additional legroom in sections from the goal line to the 30-yard line on the west side
  • Old wooden seating replaced with aluminum bleachers throughout the stadium
  • Playing surface lowered approximately four feet to improve sightlines for fans seated in lower rows

I mean once I have heard Mayor Anthony Foxx's repeated speech 30 times I would much rather check my twitter.

Or Rod Smart's Keep Pounding clip. That clip is so painful it hurts.

The city will do whatever JR asks. Charlotte is nothing without the team. Banking has declined and no one cares about the Bobcats.

This town has Bobcat Fever now that they are 4-3
