Many football game day upgrades will be unveiled at Cardinal Stadium – The Crunch Zone

The University of Louisville football season is still four months away, but when fans arrive this fall, they’ll find new enhancements to improve the overall fan experience at Cardinal Stadium for the 2022 season.

Following an extensive ongoing and post-season investigation of all ticket members, the Athletic Department has used fan feedback to effect changes beginning with the following key areas of Cardinal Stadium: Wi-Fi connectivity, upgrades upgraded club space, expedited entry point and concessions. improvements.

“These efforts are just the beginning. We know that the match experience should be assessed through the eyes of our fans. The input from our fans is invaluable, and it’s imperative that we listen, even when it’s not fun to hear, and turn that input into action. To me, it’s non-negotiable that our commitment to changing the way we operate matches CardNation’s commitment and dedicated passion for our team,” said Acting Director of Athletics Josh Heird.

High on the list of concerns was the addition of increased wireless connectivity throughout Cardinal Stadium. The Athletic Department has invested more than $5 million to install Wi-Fi access for fans to improve their wireless experience on game day. UofL is working with AmpThink on this expansive facility which will not only allow fans to use the free Wi-Fi system, but also provide more opportunities for on-site digital engagement during the game. Officials expect this project to be completed in time for the September 16 home opener against Florida State.

Thanks to the generosity of a $4 million donation from Angel’s Envy, the department invested additional funds to completely renovate the former Brown & Williamson club, located on the west side of the stadium. The expansive 18,000 square foot Angel’s Envy Bourbon Club will feature modern technology, unique gathering spaces, and elevated furnishings and finishes that honor Louisville’s rich Bourbon heritage. Elements that represent the Cardinals’ proud football history and Angel’s Envy’s distinct art deco identity will complete the club’s aesthetic. Beyond football game days, this one-of-a-kind space will once again become available for community and corporate event rentals starting this fall.

To help expedite the gate entry process, new free-standing ticket scanners will be installed to improve entry at Cardinal Stadium’s three busiest gates, Gates 2, 3 and 4. In addition, security walk-in will be set up, using fixed magnetic scanners, replacing portable/manual scanners from previous seasons.

To improve concession availability, Grab and Go stations will be installed in key areas of the stadium concourses, making high-demand options more readily available to help reduce waiting times. In addition, a free concession item for each game will be available during certain times of the game in all areas of the club.

Season passes are available now for the 2022-23 season. The UofL Season Pass model aims to provide increased value and exclusive member benefits beyond the game ticket. Benefits include access to member-only experiences and services. To visit gocards.com/fbstm for more information.
