USC PRESS RELEASE - The renovation will reduce the stadium’s current seating capacity by about 16,000 seats, thereby requiring a re-seating of current season ticketholders. Capacity will go from 93,607 to 77,500 due to such improvements as added aisles, widened seats and increased leg room in many sections and the construction of a new Scholarship Club Tower on the stadium’s south side that will include suites, loge boxes, club seats, a new concourse and a new press box.
During the next 15 months, USC Athletics representatives will contact Trojan Athletic Fund (TAF) members and invite them to visit the Coliseum Renovation Preview Center to consider available seating solutions that best suit their needs. Priority for seat selection will be determined by TAF membership level followed by lifetime giving to USC Athletics. Then, in the summer of 2018, remaining current season ticketholders will be contacted about their seating options. Every effort will be made to accommodate those who wish to continue to sit together.
Look at this place.
I mean, if you already weren't a fan of Southern California football, you might need to make seeing a game at the Coliseum number one on the college football priority list anywhere west of Texas.
The new stadium will break up the circular, all-encompassing style of the current Coliseum and allow for more corporate sponsorship opportunities.
