Look: Sanford Stadium Making Significant Progress Ahead Of G-Day


Since her first game against Yale in 1929, Sanford Stadium has been the home of the University of Georgia football team for almost 90 years and has undergone quite a bit of changes.

This offseason, the next wave of renovations are being installed in the stadium. Georgia completely remodeled the west end of Sanford in an effort to keep up in the arms race that is college football venues. The West End Zone Project includes the addition of a new videoboard 30% larger than the previous one, a new 120,000 square foot locker room and a new recruiting lounge for visiting prospects. The project will not be completely finished by G-Day, but it should be complete for Austin Peay in week one of the 2018 season.

As a result of the ongoing construction, G-Day Game will have a limited capacity, as roughly 15,000 seats in sections 137 through 144 — as well as section 101 — will not be available. The west end zone is closed off, as seen in the photo below.  The Bulldog faithful will be able to experience the new scoreboard though, as it’s installation is drawing to a close.

Take a look at some of the changes made to Sanford below.
