Grizzly Stadium Upgrades

Grizzly football fans will notice three major upgrades to Washington Grizzly Stadium this year. According to Wednesday’s press release from Joel Carlson in UM Sports Information, here’s what to watch for and take advantage of for an even more enjoyable experience.

Fans navigating the 26-27 rows on the east and west sides will have new handrails running down the middle of the 42-inch wide aisles that divide the east-and west-side seating sections.

The stadium will have improved reception for cell phones. The cell tower that was tasked with handling demand from its position on the nearby heating plant has become very outdated. Crown Castle International spent $3 million, with no expense to Montana, to outfit Washington Grizzly Stadium with more than 60 small, inconspicuous antennas, all of which feed into a headroom in the northwest corner of the stadium. Tweet away!

LED ribbon boards will run along the faces of sections 229 and 233, the “pie-shaped wedges” of the upper north end zone. The ribbon boards, also a no-cost benefit, courtesy of Grizzly Sports Properties, will each be 50 feet in length and 48 inches tall, with 40-inch LED displays.

So there you go, Griz fans. New stuff to watch for when you cheer on your Griz in 2014! DB
