PULLMAN, Wash. - Open forums on Phase III of the Martin Stadium Renovation, featuring Director of Athletics Jim Sterk and members of the WSU Athletic Foundation staff, will be held from late October to early November throughout the state of Washington and in Portland.
On Sept. 22, the public launch of the third phase of the Martin Stadium Renovation project was announced. Phase III involves the construction of luxury suites, loge boxes, and club seats atop the north stands.
Once 80 percent of premium seats have been committed, the construction of Phase III will begin. Phase III will be completed by the 2012 football season; however, if premium seat sales and fundraising benchmarks are met by Dec. 18 of this year, construction can begin sooner, and Phase III could be completed in time for the 2011 season.
More information on the renovation of Martin Stadium can be found by visiting the official stadium renovation website martinstadium.org
