Memphis announces renovation plan for Simmons Bank Liberty Stadium

Memphis has plans for a $150 million to $200 million renovation to Simmons Bank Liberty Stadium, the school announced on Thursday.

The main elements of the renovation will be to transform the west side of the stadium, which will include what the Tigers called “innovative premium seating options.” The project will also create a hospitality experience in the hollow space around the stadium, create family boxes on the north end and party deck patios for students on the south end. The east side suite tower might be repurposed.

The renovations are scheduled to be completed ahead of the 2025 football season.

“We started this process with a specific set of transformational goals in mind, and this renovation hits all of them,” Memphis athletic director Laird Veatch said in a statement. “It will demonstrate our commitment to sustainable competitive and recruiting success, provide a tremendous, upgraded fan experience and secure positive long-term economic impacts for our University and City, all while taking advantage of the current stadium infrastructure and the investments already underway at Liberty Park.”
