Five years after TCU’s Amon G. Carter Stadium underwent a massive renovation, the university is planning an expansion worth $100 million.
The Board of Trustees granted permission Tuesday to proceed with fundraising for the project, which will expand premium seating on the east side of the stadium.
“We are very grateful to our Board of Trustees for their support on this project,” TCU director of intercollegiate athletics Chris Del Conte said in a press release. “In this ever-changing landscape of collegiate athletics, you need to reinvest in your facilities. This project will position us well for the future.”
The plans for the project include two new levels of luxury seating above the current upper deck on the east side of the stadium. It also will include 48 loge boxes (small suites) with two private clubs, over 1,000 club seats and 20 luxury suites, as well as a 100-foot outdoor balcony that will overlook Frog Alley, the TCU campus and downtown Fort Worth. There will also be additional premium space that can be used for outside events on game days, and a new video board will be installed in the north end zone.

Construction would begin May 2018, assuming all necessary funds have been secured.
“The expansion would not be possible without the passion of our fan base,” said Del Conte. “We are confident the TCU Horned Frogs family will again be up to the challenge as they have been for our other recent projects.”
