Colorado State Trims Plans For New Stadium To Stay In Budget

July 9, 2015

Colorado State University has been cutting back on seats with chair backs, elevators and other amenities in order to keep plans for a new on-campus stadium within its $220 million budget.

The Fort Collins Coloradoan reports that documents show eliminating more than 4,000 seats with backs in grandstands will save the school an estimated $472,000. Officials also dropped two of six planned elevators to serve club seating areas in order to help pay for a $1.19 million field-level club seating area.
