University of Utah Announces Plans to Expand Rice-Eccles Stadium

The University of Utah today announced plans to expand Rice-Eccles Stadium after its Board of Trustees approved a request to pursue bonding. The stadium renovation, which is conditional on financing approval, should be completed prior to the kickoff of the 2021 football season. The board approved the project at its meeting on Nov. 13

“Today is an important first step in a multi-year process to expand and enhance Rice-Eccles Stadium, and I am thrilled that our community and supporters have come together to make it a reality,” said U President Ruth V. Watkins. “Our stadium serves as more than a home field for our football team. It can be a gathering place on our campus for many other events—connecting thousands of students, alumni, faculty, staff and fans to our institution and to one another. I am confident that Mark Harlan and his team will design and build a state-of-the-art facility that will serve our community well for years to come.”
