In the coming years, more Utah fans will be able to attend football games. There will be a men’s and women’s basketball practice facility, and improvements will be made to the overall Utah athletics program.
That’s what Athletics Director Chris Hill spoke of on Thursday in his monthly State of the Utes video.
The expansion of the football stadium is the first priority, with 10,000 new seats in the south end zone being the goal. Currently, Utah and Oregon are the only two teams in the Pac-12 Conference with perfect football attendance.
Upgrading the facilities has been a priority since leaving the Mountain West for the Pac-12. Utah is also in the process of moving Olympic Village to another place in the state.
