Georgia Bulldogs Unveil HOK-Designed Renovations at Sanford Stadium
The University of Georgia Bulldogs have an undefeated record to start the college football season and a newly renovated stadium that’s enhancing the experience for fans, athletes and recruits.
HOK’s Sports + Recreation + Entertainment practice recently led the renovation efforts for Sanford Stadium, the Bulldogs’ home since 1929. The design for these renovations, which encompass 120,000 square feet, incorporates upgraded amenities while preserving the history of the venue and the football program.
The improvements were unveiled at a dedication ceremony in August.

Excerpted from Business Insider:
Perhaps even more impressive than the Bulldogs’ play… is their brand-new locker room and stadium renovation.
The West End Zone Project took 16 months to complete and cost the university an estimated $63 million, which was raised primarily through The Georgia Bulldog Club’s leadership fundraising entity, The Magill Society.
Georgia’s new stomping grounds feature an upgraded locker room, a new lounge for hosting recruits on game days, restroom and concession area renovations, a new scoreboard, and an expanded upper plaza.
The team’s new recruiting hospitality lounge, which is over 10,000 square feet, sits above the locker room and will be used exclusively to host prospective student-athletes and their guests on game days.
