Latest Renderings Of New USF Football Stadium
The latest renderings of the new USF football stadium have been released. The stadium is set to open for the 2027 season. The University of South Florida announced that they will be building an on-campus stadium last year. Well now it looks like it’s almost a reality. The university release renderings of the new stadium that will be located just north of Fowler Avenue.
Some of the new features on the stadium will be a very large tailgating space. That will be located on the north side of the stadium. Additionally, there will be a variety of premium seating options, and those include suites and club areas. There will be an open concourse that will provide views of the field, even if you’re walking to the concession stand or to the restroom. Finally, there is a dedicated section for students in the west end of the stadium.
There is also a walkway called the USF Federal Credit Union Champions Way. The University of South Florida also announced yesterday that they received a $6 million gift from the USF Federal Credit Union to name that walkway that will lead into the main entrance of the new stadium. The University of South Florida has now raised more than 43 million of its $50 million goal for the stadium project.
University announced that there will be more renderings coming out in the spring of 2024. Additionally, they said that groundbreaking of the new stadium will begin in the fall of 2024.
“The design elements and amenities unveiled today all reflect our goal to build a stadium that provides the best possible experience for our students, alumni and entire fanbase. We appreciate everyone who has taken the time to share their valuable input, which is reflected in our initial renderings and will continue to be seen as we roll out more details in the future,” said Vice President of Athletics Michael Kelly.
