In conjunction with the Athletics Facilities Master Plan, the North Stands area of Kinnick Stadium has been identified as a structure in need of renovation.  The 30-year old structure has become obsolete by modern-day standards as stadiums facilities have evolved greatly in recent years.   This project will identify the best opportunities to modernize the north stands.  Improvements include:

  • Address fixed seating issues
  • Suites and other grouped seating options
  • Improved concourse amenities
  • Co-located public restaurant and retail space opportunities
  • Increased Audio/Visual technology throughout
  • Common spaces with modern amenities such as plazas and patios,
  • Modernization of restroom facilities,
  • Updated food-service/vending options,
  • Shared resource opportunities for non-game day events/programs
  • Improved accessibility for fans.

Kinnick Stadium, built in 1929, underwent a major renovation including the new South End Zone and Press Box, ten years ago.  The North stands remain unchanged from the original 1980s construction with the exception of the video/scoreboard that was added in 2013.  To view the webcam and for additional project information, visit the Kinnick Edge website.
