Cardinal Stadium expansion nearing the home stretch

The breadth and scope of the expanded football facilities at Cardinal Stadium will never be fully comprehended by the average fan. But the changes will be phenomenal for existing and future members of the University of Louisville football program.

Stadium Manager Michael Ortman takes us behind the scenes in the video with a progress report on the status of the football complex, which is being quadrupled in size. Stadium expansion, which will increase seating between 5,000 and 6,000 seats, will raise capacity to 60,000-plus for the 2018 season.
