If it seems like TCU just moved into renovated Amon G. Carter Stadium, that’s because they sort of have after the new place was opened back in 2012. After a six-year pause however, the Horned Frogs are putting the shovels back in the dirt to complete the next phase of upgrading their longtime home by announcing a $100 million expansion that will see an entire new deck built with loads of luxury boxes.
“This is more than just a football project, this facility will be used to the benefit of all 21 of our sports, our campus community and Fort Worth,” athletics director Jeremiah Donati said in a release. “It’s an appropriate expansion, with all the cutting-edge technology, to what is already the finest football stadium in the country. Our fans will enjoy an unrivaled game-day experience.”
Per the school:
The Amon G. Carter Stadium expansion project calls for two new levels of luxury seating above the current upper deck on the east side of the stadium. The new Legends Club and Suites will include 48 loge boxes with two private clubs, over 1,000 club seats and 22 luxury suites. There will also be a 100-foot outdoor balcony overlooking Frog Alley, the TCU campus and downtown Fort Worth as well as vast additional premium space that can be used for outside events on game days. Additionally, a new video board will be installed in the north end zone.
Completion is expected to be complete before the 2019 season gets underway and, as you could expect, the bulk of the work will be done when the Horned Frogs are not playing football games there this year. The expansion is mostly centered on all those luxury boxes as the stadium capacity will increase by just a few thousand people to 47,000 when the project is complete.
