The University of Louisville Athletic Association has approved the $55M project to expand the North End Zone of Papa John’s Cardinal Stadium & the Schnellenberger Complex.
In its statement the ULAA states:
“The University of Louisville Athletic Department has worked with an outside consultant to review the feasibility of expanded the existing stadium & outline a funding model to achieve this goal.”
The End Zone will be expanded to include 12 field level suites, 70 Premium Boxes, 1000 club seats for a new club area, 10,000 seats in the lower & upper level. The expansion will bring the capacity of PJCS to 65,000.
Additionally the project also includes the expansion of the Schnellenberger Complex which will add 40,000 square feet to the building. The existing 30,000 square feet would also be renovated and would expand the strength room, training room, player’ lounge & meeting spaces.
The ULAA approval allows Tom Jurich & the Football program the permission to move forward once they feel that the project is ready.
