Kauffman Stadium Renovation: “A Modern Classic”
That’s when construction gets underway for the Kauffman Stadium Renovation project.
The even BIGGER date: Opening Day 2010.
That’s when the new and improved Kauffman Stadium will be complete, and from what we’ve seen, fans have plenty to look forward to in the next three years.
The timetable for the $250 million renovation project was revealed for the first time in a joint effort by the Royals and Jackson County officials at a press conference today. Here are some highlights of the renovation project:
- New high definition scoreboard and control room.
- Crown Scoreboard, although new and improved, is here to stay!
- Fountain (Yes, they will still be here, too!) view terraces and seats.
- Improved kid’s area – bigger Little K
- Taste of Kansas City food court – local restaurants and BBQ!
- Right field restaurant and bar.
- Larger and more interactive Royals Hall of Fame.
- Expanded concourses.
- New and upgraded concessions.
- And…more restrooms!
From this short list alone, you can tell that a lot of your ideas were incorporated with the planning. So, thanks for all the input Royals fans – this project is one we can all be proud of when it’s complete!
