NORMAN, Okla. – After a review today by the University of Oklahoma Board Of Regents, the OU Athletics Department is set to begin a feasibility assessment for improvements at Gaylord Family – Oklahoma Memorial Stadium.

The process will include a look at the state of the facility and its surroundings including team facilities and fan amenities such as seating options in all areas of the stadium, concessions and fan services, disability services, the press box, the south end zone and all other aspects of stadium features and operations.

"We’re initiating a comprehensive review of one of the most tradition-rich sporting venues in the country and our ability to attract and train the country’s top student-athletes and serve the best fans in college football,” said OU Vice President and Director of Athletics Joe Castiglione.

Populous, the current master plan and project architect at the stadium will perform the services related to the review and update of the master plan.  The university also has engaged a consulting firm to ensure a fiscally responsible approach.
