Kansas State finalizes football stadium upgrade just in time

Kansas State University officials breathed a giant sigh of relief today after concluding a $75 million expansion to Bill Snyder Family Stadium in Manhattan, Kansas one week ahead of their home football opener with North Dakota State.

For many fans, returning to a favorite sports stadium after an off-season away is like reconnecting with an old friend. For Wildcat fans returning to Snyder Stadium, it’ll be more like reconnecting with an old friend who got a world-class facelift during the off-season – but only on one side of their face.

Completed in just over a year, the University flattened and remodeled the stadium’s West Stands. Named the West Stadium Center, the update added a new concourse, fan store, press box, private suites, a 15,000-square foot private lounge, a team Hall of Honor and a tailgate terrace to help fans enjoy a nice view while they get their drink on.

Below are two project videos, including the latest construction video and a concept video. With the project now complete, it’s just a matter a time before the final project tour video posts and I’ll update this post when they do.
