1. BLEACHER EXPANSION
The stadium capacity has increased by 3,500 to 37,000, thanks to new permanent, steel bleachers at both ends made possible by building a new track stadium at Dona Larsen Park. The 5,000 seats on the south end are reserved. The 3,750 seats on the north end include reserved seats in the northwest corner and general admission seats in the end zone.
2. A CONNECTED STADIUM
The bleachers in the south end zone provide a bridge from the east grandstands to the west connecting the two sides for the first time.
3. TRACK? WHAT TRACK?
Boise State opted to paint the remaining portions of the track gray to make it blend better with the rest of the stadium. The bench areas are white.
4. IMPROVED SOUND
The speakers have been moved from the south end to the north end. By aiming them at the closed end of the stadium, the school hopes for better sound quality.
5. HIGHER SCOREBOARDS
The scoreboards at the north (14 feet higher) and south (25 feet higher) ends have been elevated to compensate for the larger bleachers. Fans seated in the upper portions of the lower grandstands wont be able to see the video board, so theyll have TV monitors nearby instead.
6. FIELD GOAL NETS
The stadium now has a field goal net at both ends, rather than just the north. Posts were added at each end to hold the nets.
