SALT LAKE CITY, Utah — The Ken Garff Performance Zone at Rice-Eccles Stadium will open in 2021 and the sales process will soon begin for the new premium experiences the project will create in the south end zone of the stadium.
A dedicated website, www.KenGarffPerformanceZone.com, has launched an outreach to season ticket holders and donors has begun. The much-anticipated project that will enclose the south end of Rice-Eccles Stadium, add unique premium spaces to the venue and increase capacity to 51,444 was announced in November 2018. In April 2019 the Garff family generously pledged $17.5 million toward the $80 million project that will transform the home of Utah football and provide a world-class student-athlete experience.
“We are excited to begin the next phase of this important and transformational project for Utah Athletics,” said Mark Harlan, Director of Athletics. “Our terrific supporters are integral to everything we do, and we are pleased to share the vision for the future of Rice-Eccles Stadium through the addition of the Ken Garff Performance Zone. This new facility is a game-changer for Utah Football and for all of our athletics teams as we continue to chase championships and create the best experience for our student-athletes.”
