Arizona State is currently in the midst of gathering donations for a proposed $210 million renovation project for Sun Devil Stadium. The school is looking to gather $50 million in private donations to help fund the project, and last night it released a new rendering of the projected stadium look:

The school’s athletics website detailed some of the coming improvements:
“Arizona State University takes pride in its status as an elite institution with an elite athletics program,” said ASU President Michael Crow. “Sun Devil Stadium has been a landmark in the Valley for the last 56 years. The plan to renovate Sun Devil Stadium gives ASU an opportunity to increase our investment in the community and to set the standard for collegiate athletics facilities. We will need philanthropic support from our community in order to provide features that will take the game experience to a new level.“
To enhance the quality of the game-day experience, fans will enjoy: more legroom, seats and benches with backs, an increased number of restrooms with enhanced quality, a premiere video board and sound system, and an ADA compliant stadium, among many other a long list of amenities.
The impact of the renovation is extends beyond athletics and will have positive effects on Arizona State University, the community and the local Valley economy.
When the renovations are all said and done, this should be one of the premiere venues in college football. You can check out the pretty cool video below for more details on the project, via ASU:
