Fundraising Site Outlines UK Stadium Plans

(AP) - University of Kentucky Athletics says it is planning a $125 million renovation of Commonwealth Stadium that will include 10 to 15 suites, 2,000 to 2,500 club seats, a recruiting room and a full-service kitchen.

The Lexington Herald-Leader reports the Athletics Department's fundraising arm, the K Fund, outlined the plans on a new website, http://www.kfundonline.com .

The site lists as one goal to "Maintain, or slightly reduce, seating capacity while increasing the value of the remaining seats." Commonwealth Stadium seats 67,942.

The site also provides information on other future capital projects such as expending academic facilities, Nutter Football facilities and a rifle range. Upgrades or changes include a new baseball facility that the site says likely will cost around $32 million.
