University of Louisville— Papa John’s Cardinal Stadium Expansion
The University of Louisville Papa John’s Cardinal Stadium Expansion consists of the vertical and horizontal expansion of the east side of the stadium and the south end-zone connector. The structure is a combination of steel and composite columns that rise to an overall height of 166’ feet in the air.
The east side expansion includes the addition of 15,000 seating bowl seats, 33 new suites with 18 seats each, an enclosed loge level, two elevator and stair towers, crown trellis, restrooms and vendor areas.
The south terrace addition is approximately 60 feet wide and connects the east and west sides. This provides for a gathering area and concessions with a phenomenal view of the field. In addition, the structure is designed with the future bowl expansion of the south end in mind.
