Sanford Stadium To Receive Additional Cosmetic Upgrades


Sanford Stadium, one of the nation’s most iconic and visual pleasing college venues is about to borrow a design idea from Notre Dame.

Currently undergoing a $63 million expansion, which will move an enhanced locker room to the west end of the stadium, add a new pedestrian plaza and create a recruiting pavilion, Georgia is adding some color and character to the concourses.

During the spring Georgia Athletic Board meeting on Thursday, Associate Athletic Director Josh Brooks presented the upgrades. Brooks borrowed an idea he saw from last season’s game at Notre Dame — repainting the Reed Plaza columns with program covers from each championship year.

“You can really find a program that matches it and now you are really telling the story of the history of Sanford Stadium,” Brooks said. “This is all about warming the stadium up while also selling our rich history and just beautifying the stadium.”

Other upgrades include repainting the concourse areas and recognizing a team from each decade on columns with the matching uniform from that time.

“Going with history images, and then with a historical quote that matches up with that image,” Brooks said. “When you have a tradition like Larry Munson, you have lots of great stuff to work with.”

Georgia opens the 2018 season on September 1 when the Dawgs host the Austin Peay Governors.
