TEMPE ­– Arizona State University has committed $210 million to its football stadium renovation project and launched the Momentum Campaign in January to raise the remaining $50 million. In addition to seeking private donations, the campaign aims to identify new revenue streams to fund the renovation.

The renovation plan includes a double-sided video board in the north end zone, a new student section in the south end zone, a new terrace pavillion, more restrooms and concessions, escalators connecting concourse levels and a new sound system. The biggest addition will be a video system that will project images and video onto the outside of the stadium.

Work has already begun, upper-deck sections in the north end zone removed.

The 56-year-old stadium was last renovated in 1988.


  Renovation plans:  
• Remove upper-deck seating in north end zone, decreasing capacity by 5,700.
• New student section in south end zone.
• Double-sided video board above the north end zone.
• Video boards to show video and images to people outside stadium.
• More concessions and bathrooms.
• New sound system.
• Add escalators to connect concourse levels
