I love cheering on my National Champion Georgia Bulldogs from the comfort of my couch. However nothing beats going to a game in person. Athens, Georgia on game day is one of the most fun atmospheres there is. Walking into Sanford Stadium is an awesome experience, and soon it will get even better! According to Online Athens, the University System of Georgia Board of Regents approved a $68.5 million set of improvements for the south end of Sanford Stadium.
Don’t worry though, the construction won’t hamper this football season or next. Construction will begin at the end of the upcoming season and be completed following the 2023 season. Here’s some of the changes you can expect according to the Online Athens article I read.
The first phase will include construction of a new connection to Sanford Drive at Gillis Bridge for easier fan access. There will also be the creation of an adjacent plaza space. Also a significant widening of the 100 Level Concourse, and restroom upgrades.
The second phase will vertically expand the southwest corner of the stadium to include a new press box. It will also include six premium suites, and additional restrooms on the 300 Level. The current press box will be converted into additional premium seats.
Only a few more weeks until The Dawgs to try repeat as National Champions so in the meantime, here is the full article about all of the Sanford Stadium upgrades.
