Update on Louisville’s Cardinal Stadium expansion

No more need to close one’s eyes to visualize how the addition is going to impact the physical structure. The foundation is there, ready for all the extra touches to be added. 

The concrete vertex is now complete at the top of the end zone addition at Cardinal Stadium, which means that installation of the new video scoreboards and between 5,000 and 6,000 new seats can’t be far behind.

Except for a few people huddled at the tip of the addition, most of the construction workers were leaving when the observer checked out the expansion progress on Wednesday.

From all indications, the project is on schedule, within budget, and will be ready for the home opener against Indiana State on Sept. 8th. Capacity is expected to be 61,000-plus.

The expanded stadium will be a motivating force for University of Louisville football players who are preparing for the opening of spring football camp on Tuesday, March 20. The spring football game is scheduled Saturday, April 14th at 1 p.m.
