Georgia – The University System of Georgia Board of Regents has approved to move forward with improvements to the south side of Sanford Stadium. The $68.5 million project will be built in two phases to minimize disruption during the 2022 and 2023 football seasons.

The first phase would build a new entryway and plaza and widen the lower-level concourse to make it easier for fans to get around the 92,000-seat stadium. It would add new concession stands, expand bathrooms by adding more toilets and sinks, and relocate and expand seating for people with disabilities.

The second phase would build a new 154-seat press box on the southwest corner of stadium, add six new suites with a total of 125 seats, and convert the existing press box into expanded club space for donors with 270 seats. The project would also add restrooms and a new elevator on the stadium’s upper level.
Regents also approved a $26.7 million plan to replace the Lindsey Hopkins Indoor Tennis Facility, built in 1979. The new building would include six indoor tennis courts, up from four. Officials said having six courts would let the university bid for NCAA tournaments.
