About the project

This massive multi-phased expansion and renovation project brings elevated amenities to the players, fans, and club-level guests to The Gaylord Family—Oklahoma Memorial Stadium. The project also made substantial improvements to vertical circulation within the development, offering a more comfortable visit to all.

Other additions include 2,000 seats and 22 luxurious suites, club spaces, cutting-edge training facilities, a new press box, seating concourses, and more. 

Below the seating bowl, a 30,000-square-foot state-of-the-art training and sports performance facility, hosting offices, locker rooms, hydrotherapy spaces, the “Red Room,” a 212-seat, 3,700 square-foot meeting space, and more were among new expansions. The mostly column-less design required multiple transfer elements and hanging floor systems.
