KU Athletics renderings show major changes to football stadium as part of $350M plan

Kansas Athletics has unveiled renderings for the renovation of Memorial Stadium, part of a five-year, $350 million fundraising effort. Upgrades also are planned for Allen Fieldhouse, volleyball’s Horejsi Center and baseball’s Hoglund Ballpark. Renderings of the football project show two new video boards in the north end zone, with the east and west stands splitting into multiple tiers with new suites. The north end zone seating will be squared off, opposed to the current bowl construction, and a new seating complex will be built in the south end zone, which will close off the stadium.
