Renovations are taking shape at Maverik Stadium, where the Utah State Aggies are unveiling some major changes.
This season, Maverik Stadium will offer a highly-anticipated upgrade on the west end. A three-story building has been constructed to house loge and club seating, plus an upgraded press box. In terms of both cost and size, this is a fairly large project, with final estimates stating a $36 million project for the 85,000 square foot space.
Utah State has been looking to freshen up the facility, which first opened in 1968. To jumpstart the project, it reached a naming rights agreement with Maverik convenience stores in the spring of last year.
Now, school officials are anticipating how the renovations will reshape the stadium. More from KSL.com:
“I think it’s just a byproduct of the last few years, and the commitment from our administration, starting with president (Stan) Albrecht and our athletic administration,” Utah State coach Matt Wells said. “It shows commitment, when you put dollars and time and effort into something like this.
“The plan has been done right. Everything that touches these players was done first, but this is the icing on the cake.”
It’s been two decades since Wells suited up at quarterback for the Aggies, and the changes on campus in his time as head coach have blown him away.
“It’s a little surreal,” he said. “Sometimes you walk out on the turf and look up at this amazing structure. Those of us who have been going here for a long time wonder how this is happening in this stadium.”
The new structure will make its debut during the Aggies’ opener on September 1.
