New Colorado State football stadium taking shape

Colorado State new stadium

Colorado State football has called Hughes Stadium home since 1968, but in the middle of a Bold New Era for Rams athletics, it’s time for a change of scenery for the athletic department’s highest-earning team.

The school is on its way to opening the doors of a brand new on-campus football stadium, and Mike Brohard from the Loveland-Reporter Herald says progress is indeed happening.

“A lot of it’s starting to go up and they’re getting really close to portions of it, where, if they wanted to, they could start doing some interior work on it,” Brohard said, “but it’s taking shape.”

GIL WHITELEY LIVE STREAMThe idea for a new stadium was proposed by school president Tony Frank in 2014. The process began last month with site clearing and utility work, and a ground-breaking ceremony will be held the weekend of September 12. For a projected timeline of the stadium’s construction, click here.

The two-level stadium will house classrooms, the school’s new Alumni Center, and the Center for Advising and Student Achievement. Seating options will include indoor and outdoor clubs, loge boxes, suites, and bleachers.
