The Clemson Board of Trustees Friday voted its approval for renovations to Death Valley that will be completed prior to the 2021 season. The $60-70 million dollar project will be paid for by the athletic department and IPTAY without the use of public or University money. This will be the first major update to the lower deck seating the in the stadium since the addition of the West Zone in 2006.
Here are more details on the project:
Video Board, Sound & Lighting
The current main video board in the east is 65 feet wide by 25 feet tall (1,625 sq. ft.) and was installed in 2010. A new board is proposed at 126 feet wide by 57 feet tall (7,166 sq. ft.), or nearly five times the surface area. Included would be a new sound system and LED stadium lighting.
East Entry at Howard’s Rock
The bottom of the new video board will be approximately 20 feet above ground, opening a 365-day view connecting the stadium and Scroll of Honor Memorial. It will be the first adjustment to the east entry to campus since a video board was added in 2005. The current video board was put in place in 2010.
West Concourse Club
A reconfiguration of the concourse level will allow for a new club area with more than 700 outdoor seats and accompanying indoor space comparable to the current Younts South Club.
Field Level Club
A club on field level in the west will offer a new premium experience. The 240 seats on field level connect to a club underneath a reconfigured first level of the WestZone.
Locker Room expansion; Field level development
The gameday locker room will be renovated and expanded to nearly 8,000 sq. ft. for the 120 student-athletes and coaches. The field level space will be reconfigured with a new equipment room, training room and club.
New structures in the east will add nearly 2,500 lower deck seats and enclose that end of the stadium.
