Memorial Stadium, the home for Nebraska football, is going to get revamped. That includes losing a few thousand seats; some fans aren’t happy.
Trev Alberts officially announced that Nebraska football’s stadium is going to look quite a bit different by the time 2026 rolls around. Of course, it will look different before that, but the revamping and construction should all be completed at that point.
Among the changes are modernizing bathrooms, changing where the student section will be located, and the possibility of 10,000 seats.
It’s that last tidbit that has gotten the most attention from a massive part of the Nebraska football fanbase. More than a few are a bit worried that making the seating capacity smaller is going to somehow diminish the stadium and the sellout streak.
The cost of getting tickets is definitely part of what has Nebraska football fans nervous. The availability has people worried as well.
It doesn’t help that the Nebraska football program isn’t saying just how season tickets and whatnot are going to be handled. The university has said that more details will be coming in the near future.
That includes allowing people to choose to opt into different seats and whatnot if they are seated in the south stadium. The university has said it will let people know how those seats getting lost are going to be dealt with.
Some Nebraska football fans see a silver lining
None of this is going to get settled anytime soon. Construction isn’t even starting for a few years. Nebraska football fans are going to be able to see the changes in real-time. And they will almost certainly be weighing in the whole time.
