Carter Stadium construction continues to make progress. Photo by Livia Lavender.The expansion of premium seating in Amon G. Carter Stadium likely won’t be complete by the start of the fall season, according to TCU Athletics. Director of Intercollegiate Athletics Jeremiah Donati said the heavy rains in September and October caused a 30-day delay in construction. More than half of the steel has been installed and once that’s finished, construction officials should be able to have a predictable completion date, Donati said.The $100 million expansion is expected to add more than 1,000 club seats,  48 boxes, two private clubs and 22 luxury suites. “I think it will make the stadium louder because now the top of the east side will match the top of the west side,” Donati said. “I think it will capture the sound and potentially make for a louder environment”This project has increased the numbers of newer and younger donors supporting the team, he said. Construction on a $100 million addition to Amon G. Carter Stadium has been delayed. Donati hopes the new seats will boost ticket sales. Former TCU linebacker Ty Summers said he is excited about the construction and the enhancement of the fan experience. The new space will be used for many other events post-football season. The architecture is designed to be a multifunctional space that the community can take advantage of.“The views looking over campus and looking into downtown Fort Worth will be spectacular,” Donati said. “We will have a space where you can comfortably sit 600 to 700 people for banquets.” Livia Lavenderhttps://www.tcu360.com/author/livia-lavender/ Facebook Twitter ReddIt Twitter Livia Lavenderhttps://www.tcu360.com/author/livia-lavender/last_img read more
