The University of Georgia Athletic Association will consider another major project for Sanford Stadium at a meeting this week. The cost is estimated at $68.5 million.

Part of the plan would improve Gate 9 by creating a new pathway designed to manage congestion. The South 100 concourse would double in size and restrooms and concessions would be added to the area. Permanent restrooms will be added on the southwest 300 level corner along with portable concession stands.

According to Athletics Director Josh Brooks, the current press box with prime seating would be replaced by premium spaces for high end donors with a new press box to built on the southwest corner with six additional suites added in that area.

Work on phase one would begin at the end of the coming football season and would wrap up before the following football season. Phase two would be completed in time for the 2024 season.
