In 2014, Arizona State University and Sun Devil Athletics kicked off the
reinvention of iconic Sun Devil Stadium $268M project that includes a 115,000
square foot Student-Athlete Facility.
"The momentum behind what our alumni and supporters are doing for Sun
Devil Athletics is truly remarkable," said Ray Anderson, ASU Vice President for
University Athletics and Athletics Director. "It enables us to expand our vision
and to deliver a higher level of quality for our student-athletes and our fans.
With deep gratitude, we are taking their enthusiasm and using it to reinvest."
Financed through university bonds and private donations, the project was
divided into three phases to allow Sun Devil football to stay and play in Sun
Devil Stadium. In the fall of 2016, construction team Hunt/Sundt finished
phase II of the stadium, with the reinvention completed for the fall of 2017.
Built in 1958, crews have reconstructed the north, south and west sides Sun
Devil Stadium within the iconic Tempe/Hayden Buttes, replacing most of the
unseen infrastructure in the building. Fans attending Sun Devil football games
can expect more legroom, expanded concourses to increase airflow throughout
the stadium, more restrooms, more points of sale for concessions, handrails
to help access seats safer, new WiFi and enhanced cell service, to name a
few improvements. In 2017, the stadium will be topped off with an oversized
videoboard in the north end zone.
