TCU plans to spend $100 million on luxury suites and premium seating at Amon G. Carter Stadium, after a “fantastic” response to a survey of season-ticket holders.
The school announced the fundraising campaign on Tuesday, five years after a $164 million overhaul that was completed before TCU’s first season in the Big 12.
The project will add two new levels of luxury seating above the upper deck on the east side of the stadium. The expansion includes two private clubs, more than 1,000 club seats and 20 luxury suites. A 100-foot balcony will overlook Frog Alley, the TCU campus and downtown Fort Worth.
Athletic director Chris Del Conte said almost 2,000 season-ticket holders responded to the survey of 8,000, describing what they would like to see in new suites and club seats.
"Most fans have already experienced AT&T Stadium, they've experienced other stadiums,” Del Conte said. “We wanted to see what amenities they wanted.”
If the fundraising goal is met by its April 2018 deadline, construction will begin in May, with completion expected in time for the 2019 season.
