The long-awaited renovations to Romney Stadium are another small step closer to fruition, Utah State announced Friday afternoon.
The university's Board of Trustees have formally approved plans to update the venerable stadium, which the athletics department hopes to modernize with luxury seating, a new press box, concession stands, restrooms and other facilities. It's an early step, but an important one that allows athletic director Scott Barnes and his staff to move forward on funding models for what could amount to the most ambitious facilities project of his tenure.
"Our objective is to formalize our revenue model to better understand the scope of the project we can fund," Barnes said in the school news release. "Ultimately, I see two phases, and we need to answer the question of what potential funding might buy in phase 1, in addition to new premium seating, club amenities and a press box structure. And, how soon can we get started on design."
