With much pomp and circumstance, the University of Kentucky unveiled the plans for the renovation of Commonwealth Stadium. The biggest surprise is that seating will be decreased to 61,000, but in my opinion, I am OK with that. Fewer seats will create more demand for tickets as the program grows and will make the UK games a “hot ticket” once again. I am assuming in time, the capacity can be increased.
Jason Marcum was at the press conference today and had these videos of today’s speakers, starting with Governor Steve Beshear.
Football coach Mark Stoops and AD Mitch Barnhart also spoke about the renovations.
