An updated rendering of the West Zone shows seating nearly to ground level.

Yesterday afternoon reports surfaced that Clemson's Memorial Stadium could see about $70 million in renovations if a request from the university is approved at Friday's Board of Trustees meeting. 

Today, Clemson’s Finance and Facilities Committee met to review the proposed additions and renderings to the tune of $67.8 million.

Clemson’s East Endzone would also get a major upgrade.

The vote would approve Phase I, which is design. Construction would be approved at a later meeting. 

The renderings included a revamped West Zone section, locker room upgrades, new video board, lights, and sound systems. There were also upgrades to seating, but according to Riley Morningstar of The (Seneca) Journal reports that the capacity could fluctuate to 83,000, but the goal is to stay around 81,500.

The projects will hopefully be completed by the summer of 2021.
