·1 min read

The University of Georgia held a board meeting on Thursday where the ‘Sanford Stadium Project’ was rolled out to board members.

The project will cost approximately $68.5 million and includes two phases. The first will widen the south side concourse and add new restrooms and concessions. The concourse has been described as a ‘decades-old problem’ by Athletic Director Josh Brooks.

The second phase includes adding a new press box atop the southwest corner of the stadium.

Premium donor seating will also bed added in place of the press box on the 30-yard line with new club seating and more suites. The additions will begin construction in December of 2023.

President Jere Moorhead also recommended a new extension for head coach Kirby Smart, who is currently on a seven-year deal worth seven million per year which was signed in 2018.
