Papa Johns Cardinal Stadium Expansion Renderings

The success of the 2013 version Louisville Cardinals football squad has fans dreaming again of stadium expansion. National pundits have reminded college football fans ad nauseam that Louisville has a weak schedule. The louder they shout it, the truer it gets. Right? Despite this given, Louisville fans have turned out for home games at a better pace than ever and more room will eventually be needed for fans. What can be expected from future expansion?
With the move to the ACC in 2014 and the improved slate of home games (both in name and objective quality), most anticipate that tickets will become prohibitively expensive on the secondary market. Naturally, the talk turns to stadium expansion. Some sort of expansion in the near future is a given. The size, scope and look of which is to be determined.
Above is the most likely scope of the next expansion which involves closing in the North end-zone.
But could Louisville go further?
Louisville fans are a passionate and creative lot. And here at PE, we have a couple of those…uh…lots. Perhaps the most enjoyable part of stadium expansion is the anticipation. We expended some of our creative juices and anxious energy satisfying our curiosity of what an “all out” expansion may look like. By now, we must seem like a “bigger is better” kind of crowd. Our Nippert Stadium post being some proof.
But what better way to welcome the Fighting Irish to town than the sight of this?
