UT Football Just Got Bigger With $175 Million In Scheduled Renovations To DKR Stadium

The University of Texas recently announced that it will be moving forward with a $175 million renovation to the south end zone of Darrel K. Royal Stadium. The Missouri-based architect group Populous has been chosen for the job, and with past projects such as Minute Maid Park and NRG Stadium in Houston, they most certainly have big plans for UT.

The stadium renovations are set to include:

  • A Longhorn-shaped balcony designed into the end zone seating, which will be visible from the air.
  • Specially designed premium experiences such as field-level club seats and seats near the Bevo corral
  • Student concession areas and dining patios overlooking the field
  • A New stage for the Longhorn Network’s Gameday show and visiting networks
  • Upgraded offices for coaching staff
  • New entry towers
