Ross-Ade Stadium renovations are finally on track after years of planning, as the Purdue University Board of Trustees approves $45.4 million for the first phase of a multi-phase overhaul.
The first phase of Ross-Ade Stadium renovations includes the construction of a new team entrance/tunnel from the Kozuch Football Performance Complex to Rohrman Field, the conversion of the existing team store into a student-athlete nutrition/dining facility and the construction of a concourse connector adjoining additional seating in the south end zone. The entire project will be funded by donations.
While the general outline of the renovations and the budget was announced, other specifics, such as the construction timeline, were not. In addition, information about the additional renovations will be outlined and communicated as they are further developed.
“These renovations will make a huge difference for our student-athletes and enhance the overall fan experience at Ross-Ade,” said coach Jeff Brohm, whose contract was extended as well. “We are grateful to our fans, donors, the Board of Trustees, Mike Bobinski, and President Daniels for their commitment to the growth and success of Purdue Football. This project will have a positive impact on our program for years to come.”
