Tennessee is a public university and funding for the renovations come from public funds in the state budget. The budget for Phase 1 increase by $49 million and was approved by the Board of Trustees in 2023.

Peter Ludman of Cope Architecture said that the scope of the renovations “morphed over time” but he expected the building commission presentation to be his last on the project.

Earlier renovations included wifi at the stadium, infrastructure for Concourse 1’s expansion, a new kitchen and commissary, new South Concourse 2 seating, a new North video board plaza, new North and South video boards in 2022 and new West lower bowl seating.

Ludman also highlighted the new West Field Club, saying there is a waiting list to get seats in the area.
