The University of Louisville will expand Papa John's Cardinal Stadium for the second time in the last decade, a development which will enclose the north end zone, create multiple new fan amenities, and enlarge and enhance the training facilities for the football team.
About 10,000 additional seats will be added with the expansion, creating a unique look in the end zone structure for the stadium and increasing the total seating capacity to approximately 65,000. The expansion will include 1,000 modern club seats,70 new premium loge level boxes, and 12 exclusive field level suites, while adding 70,000 distinct square feet of space. The club seats will have access to a premier gathering area that will provide viewing access to the field. The middle of the field level will feature a special entrance for the team surrounded by supporters.
The design will provide a connection between the east and west sides of the stadium. The stadium seating will continue to feature all chairback seating for fans, providing the only university-owned and operated stadium in the nation with that element.
The Howard Schnellenberger Football Complex, which currently sits in the north end zone, will undergo a major expansion and facelift. The team's weight room and conditioning center will double in size, creating a total of 20,000 square feet of work space for training, conditioning, and therapeutic support. A spacious player's lounge, improvements for coaches' offices and the team locker room, and expansive theater-style meeting areas will also be among the enhancements for student-athlete development.
The project will cost approximately $55 million, which will be raised through sponsorships, private donations, ticket sales, and other possible sources. To learn more please visit ComingFullCircle.com

The Champions Club is a premium club seating experience surrounding the University Center Club located in Doak Campbell Stadium. This exclusive section allows FSU fans to hear the roar of the crowd from the comfort of cushioned club seats and to move between indoor club amenities and the covered rooftop terraces with cabanas without losing sight of the action on the field. The Champions Club Campaign will take FSU’s facilities, scholarships and the operating budget to a higher level in all sports. The enhancements will include those facilities where the Seminoles live, work, study and play. The facilities will help current student-athletes achieve their goals, attract prospective student-athletes and improve the game day experience for Seminole fans.
When Kansas State University recognized the need to keep their beloved stadium competitive on a national level, it became apparent that a significant renovation of the Bill Snyder Family Stadium was called for, and that a majority of the $75 million budget would need to come from private donations.
Max Wave Media was enlisted by the project’s Design Architect, Heery International , to give potential donors the ability to visualize the New Stadium, envision the opportunities for naming rights and even select their own private suite. Long-time partners in the creation of sophisticated visualizations for use in fundraising campaigns, the Heery-Maxwave relationship spans over two dozen projects and has enabled clients throughout the country to create accelerated fundraising momentum.
The largest single project ever undertaken on Kansas State University’s campus, the planned stadium expansion included the complete replacement of all facilities on the west side of the field including new media and broadcast facilities; new suite, club and loge seating; new concourses and concessions; a new student athlete dining hall, a new tailgate terrace, improvements to the seating bowl and the addition of a K-State Athletics Hall of Honor. These improvements would create a new compelling first impression for new recruits, alumni, visitors and potential donors.
Max Wave Media created a fully articulated 3-D game day experience of the $75 million, 250,000 gross square-foot improvement project. The virtual tour showcases many feature of the new stadium and depicts the donors, alumni and fans enjoying the new facilities. This virtual tour can be seen on the fundraising campaign’s website, social media and print campaign, keeping the public informed and donors curious about project progress.
The new and improved stadium will be ready for the first game of the 2013 season.
Max Wave Media was proud to help showcase t his 600-acre world-class park, that has now become the epicenter of sports tourism development in the Sarasota area. After presenting this video to the county commissioner,s they approved a $40 million plan to transform the park into the No. 1 competitive rowing facility in the nation.
About half of the improvements will be paid for with county-controlled hotel occupancy tax funds. The rest will be sought from the state and federal governments and charitable donations.
As commissioners cast their unanimous vote for the rowing plan, other groups that have been at work boosting sports tourism in the area were announcing successes.
After consulting with rowing coaches, athletes and area residents, the county drafted a plan that includes expanding the existing lake from a 1,750-meter rowing course to 2,000 meters, making it eligible to host higher-level competitions. It will also feature gardens, fishing piers, walking trails, boat launches, bike rentals, a restaurant, a playground and a volleyball court.
The expansion will make Benderson Park one of just six venues in North America that satisfy International Rowing Federation requirements. The park could draw up to 12 regattas annually.
Backers say the park could generate millions in revenue for area hotels, restaurants and stores.
