Morning Husker fans. The University officially released video and a statement about the upcoming East Stadium expansion that will be going on at Memorial Stadium. There will be an additional 6,000 seats added as well as 38 new suites. The initial plan is calling for the entire expansion to be completed before the 2013 football season. Once completed Memorial Stadium will hold around 91,000 fans and be just on the outside of top 10 largest venues in college football.

Some fans have been wondering what was going on with all the trees being removed a while back on the East side and that’s just to make room for all the construction. Trees will be added back and everything will look great once completed. The developers were able to keep the old facade and will make it look great with the new construction that will be going around it.

Take a look at the video blow and let us know what you think.

    I think the stadium will be top notch when they get it done. My only concern is that sell out streak, will they be able to continue?

    I don’t think you will have to worry about the sell out streak Tom. The suites are already sold or have people lined up to purchase them and they will be sold in 10 year blocks just like on the West side of the stadium.

    This is a great facility for a university, am sure you will host several tournaments once completed.
