UC Berkeley’s Memorial Stadium Upgrade

Posted: January 22nd, 2010 | Author: Shawn | Filed under: Uncategorized | No Comments »

It was announced today that the University of California Board of Regents has approved a $321 Million renovation and and seismic retrofit of Memorial Stadium on the Berkeley campus.  You can read the New York Times article about the announcement here: http://bit.ly/4AmMMj

Looks like they are going to reduce seating and upgrade the facilities.  Capacity will be reduced from 72K to 63K.  Funding is to come from 3000 new seat licenses in the stadium.  Work is to begin later this year with the Bears football team playing in a different stadium, yet unnamed, for the 2011 Season.  My first guess would be Oakland Coliseum but I really don’t know.  Any ideas out there about where Cal may play in 2011?
