On Monday, Kentucky revealed renderings for a renovation at Commonwealth Stadium.
The $110 million project will be completed by the start of the 2015 season. It includes new and improved concourses, a recruiting room, premium seating and more facilities.
Mark Stoops has done a good job selling the future of the program with a highly-ranked recruiting class set to come in, and the stadium renovations are proof of the support the school is giving to football.
“This is a historic time for Kentucky Football,” athletic director Mitch Barnhart said in a statement. “The vision we have long worked toward is taking shape, and Commonwealth Stadium will be transformed through a $110-million facelift. These upgrades will be completed for the 2015 football season. When the Wildcats take the field and you fill the stands for our eight home games in 2015, I believe you will be proud of the new home we have created together for Kentucky Football. With our program entering a new era under Coach Mark Stoops, the stadium will have a brand-new look, both inside and out.”
