The University of Memphis and the City of Memphis announced plans Thursday to renovate the Simmons Bank Liberty Stadium.
The renovation is expected to cost somewhere between $150-200 million dollars.
The University says the modernization project will include:
  • A transformation of the stadium’s west side, providing several innovative premium seating options
  • Creating a hospitality experience within the halo space surrounding the stadium
  • Other new seating options, such as family boxes on the north end and party deck patios for students on the south end
  • A potential repurpose and retrofit of the east side suite tower

New University of Memphis President Dr. Bill Hardgrave said this renovation is the future of Memphis Tiger football.

“The commitment to greatly enhance the home of Tiger Football is a significant step toward realizing our potential as we position ourselves to succeed at the highest level of collegiate athletics,” said Hardgrave.

The goal for completion of the renovation has been set for the 2025 football season.
