I understand those truths being identified as reasons. Here in Tampa Bay that is exactly what is said in order to explain the lack of attendence for the Rays despite ongoing success on field.
That said as you noted these are national truths, the playing field is even so to speak. Every one of those who are expanding have those influences as well and some do not have the influence of current high on field success, ie. ARK, even Old Miss is limited. thus why I was surprized to read what I have.

I actually expected post something more along the lines of... "u in a hole or something down there in Tampa, we are in the midst of the greatest era of our program and it is exploding bla bla. expantion and reno are beginning... we r doing such and such...."

FYI Here is the rendering that came out a long time ago in regards to expansion. Would have been cool. IMO it would have happened if attendance hadn't started decreasing nation wide (for various reasons.)


Capacity was supposed to jump to 88,000. Here's the website concerning the expansion:

I dont see anything wrong with having 90K seats. Our stadium would sell out no problem. Close in the corners some and lets hit the 90K mark. We should be ashamed if we think 90K seats are too many. Hell our SEC games would sell out 110K plus. We are a top tier program in the SEC and like the earlier poster said ARK, Ole Miss, Missouri, TAMU, LSU, are all expanding. We either get on the bus or get left behind.

Default Re: WB stadium expantion.

Missippi State is expanding their stadium but it is to add 9,000 seats to get to 61,000 capacity (that's far less than we currently have).

Missouri is expanding to 76,000 capacity (also less than we currently have)

Ole Miss is enclosing their North Endzone and adding more suites to the South and West stands. Obviously they can charge more for the suites and that project is in conjuction with also building a new basketball arena. Their current capacity is also only 60,000

USC has big projects already going on right now (practice facility, surrounding area outside of Williams-Brice, plus recently built tennis facilities, new track facilities, the beast board, etc.) It's not as though USC is standing still we are constantly upgrading just doing it to different areas that are higher priority.

LSU is adding and upperdeck to their North Endzone for the primary reason of adding Luxary Suites for increased revenue. It will likely increase their capacity to right above 100,000.

Texas A&M has ridiculous money and is basically building a whole new football stadium (we don't have that kind of $)

My question is, do you just want USC to expand if it is not feasible? We are still selling out the same stadium we sold out in the 0-21 era except it is more challenging now with HD tv's and we are selling those tickets at a much higher price. If demand stays strong and increases i'm sure they will look at eventually adding on more suites as that is the route to the most $ but for the time being we are focusing on catching some of our other facilities up so that we can compete with the big boys in recruiting.

Default Re: WB stadium expantion.

Arkansas is expanding by adding an upper level (for premium seating) which will increase capacity to 80,000 which is what we currently have, and some people are questioning if it makes sense as Arkansas has not sold out all of their games in their current capacity. Others are expanding to catch up to us as we already have 80,000 seats and LSU and A&M are bigger profile/ have more money and we are trying to catch them. Also, just because other schools are expanding does not mean it is wise or the best way they could be spending their money

I would rather them redo the stands and underneath facility's of the south east and north lowers sections... That's is the oldest section of the stadium and IMO is in desperate need to renevation... If they did this I think they would enable to add seats by closing of the corners etc..

I and I didn't read anyone to say take action that isn't feasble. my post and those I read in favor of expansion were either folk who disagree with your accessment that it isn't feasable or may believe WBS is or should be a priority. Or, in my case, initially seeking info thinking, actually presuming our historic support combined recent success would indeed have drawn fan support sufficiently that it was feasable. the sort of responce I anticipated was something like "we are doing such and such to expand and renovate beginnning xx/xxxx and thisis what they are doing blabla. so being away and unaware am interested in the hows and whys.
along with maybe some answers (or estimates) to the initial ? which ws what is the POTENTIAL max capacity of WBS upon expansion. when, if it were. thats all.

Default Re: WB stadium expantion.

People aren't coming to game because the equation of watching at home/bar/tailgate with alcohol, good food, more comfortable seating, easier access > the game experience. To change that equation, more needs to be done to improve the experience, better bathrooms, seating, ease of parking, accessible foods, alcohol instead of just putting more seats in.

My larger point is that most of those expansions are by teams that have far less seats than we do and are expanding and still going to have less than us (save for LSU and TA&M). There aren't many teams right now that have expansion plans that have over 80,000 capacity currently before expansion. Texas A&M has much more money than USC and LSU has won multiple National Championships plus LSU is the only game in town in Louisiana (no other major university to compete with for attendance) it's fairly easy to explain why we are not expanding. The demand is high for college football in general, but we have a stadium right now that fits our market and is priced accordingly.

Demand has certainly gone up since those 0-21 days but as we added new fans we also priced some current ones out with the seat license fees and higher ticket prices (which were necessary)

In 2012 we officially sold out 3 home games at W-B, including the all-time record-setter versus UGA. Just missed on games for ECU, UAB, Arkansas, and Wofford. I wonder if the career-ending injury to Lattimore played a role in those final 2 home games falling short, as USC sold out 3 consecutive gms up to and including the UT gm he got injured in. Typically the SEC home games are the best chances for selling out - I can see ECU and UAB not, as those opponents wouldn't be seen as premium opponents...

I guess it's a discussion between # of actual tickets sold, versus # of fannies that end up in the seats during games. What drives planning for stadium capacity expansion? Fannies don't pay the bills for expansion, the $$ that allowed access for those fannies does.

An improved game-day experience will help in putting more fannies into the seats, but the question remains: if USC continues to sell out home games into the near future, how many MORE fans are there out there that would possibly buy tickets to games that are missing out unless W-B is expanded (regardless if those fans will actually come to the games and use those tickets or not), and is that lost ticket revenue enough to justify the expansion costs?

That's the big question. If USC expanded the stadium, I'm sure they could get more people to buy tickets, but would it be enough to justify the millions of $'s it would take to expand? I contend that, at the current time, it would be better to upgrade the existing stadium and surrounding area than to expand seating. Do things like upgrade concessions and bathrooms, upgrade the surrounding parking lots/tailgating areas, etc. Then, if we are still consistently selling out games, look at expanding the seating areas.

The highest number I have seen from the university is 88k-90k with the addition of the North Upper. For some reason when they built the upper decks in the 1970's, they engineered them differently so it would not be possible to "Bowl" the stadium which decreases the maximum you could get to.

Default Re: WB stadium expantion.

I am no genius here, but I think the OP was attempting to ask how much can we actually expand Williams-Brice. In other words, what is our maximum capacity for expansion. How many more seats can we actually put in the stadium without some kind of extreme cosmetic change.

We did. There were games where the stadium wasn't packed, though. That was more of what I was talking about. Actually getting people in to the stadium.

Default Re: WB stadium expantion.

Like many of you, I would rather see improvements to the stadium, such as larger bathrooms and concessions and better aesthetics around the outside of the stadium, although the second part has been approved and will look absolutely spectacular once it's completed.

Truthfully, I see no need to expand. 80,250+ works just fine, as evidenced by 18 straight home wins.
