As a part of the “Coming Full Circle” campaign to turn the horseshoe-shaped Papa John’s Cardinal Stadium into a completely 4 sided stadium, the Cardinal Athletic Fund revealed a new aspect of the new section of the stadium called the “Three Stripe Zone”.
In the Three Stripe Zone part of the new section, fans will not only have a great view, but additional perks as well. This includes cushioned chairback seating, increased leg room, and priority on the football parking waiting list.
However, there are only 534 seats available in the Three Stripe Zone. If you want to join the waiting list for this prestigious football experience, follow the link here.
Construction work on the stadium began at the end of the regular season in late November. The first phase of the project which will be the seating structure for the interior bowl, will be in place but not completed for the beginning of the 2017 football season. Phase 2 will begin Jan. 1, 2018. The second phase will be the renovations to the Howard Schnellenberger team complex, which will include 100,000 square feet of space that will double the size of the team’s weight room and conditioning center. The tentative completion goal for the whole project was the 2019 season but faster than expected fundraising has moved the completion date up to the start of the 2018 season. The Cards open the 2018 season in Orlando against Alabama, so it appears the first game in the newly renovated PJCS will be on Saturday September 8th against the Indiana State Sycamores (AKA sacrificial lambs). Of course that is subject to change.
