General Project Questions

OU Athletics is committed to providing our student-athletes, coaches and fans with the best facilities in our conference, region and across the country. The renovations to Gaylord Family – Oklahoma Memorial stadium will not only enhance our ability to recruit and train the nation’s best and brightest student-athletes, but also build upon a game day environment that is second to none. Significant emphasis has been placed on improving and creating new fan amenities and seating options that further strengthen Gaylord Family – Oklahoma Memorial Stadium’s reputation as one of the great cathedrals in college football.

The projects outlined in the conceptual master plan are estimated to cost around $370 million and will be funded entirely through private funds from OU Athletics and its donors. Those funds will not include any student fees or university or tax payer subsidies.
