February 13, 2013

DALLAS (SMU) - Continuing its efforts to provide the best in athletic facilities, SMU today announced another round of Ford Stadium upgrades, adding a new 233-seat Hall of Champions Club and seven new suites in time for the 2013 season and SMU's move to the BIG EAST.

Among the great features of the new Club and suites will be their indoor/outdoor design which will allow fans to enjoy the comfort of indoor amenities as well as the excitement of sitting out in the bowl and hearing the roar of the crowd and the hard-hitting action on the field. Renderings of the new areas can be seen  here.

Those renovations included a new team meeting room with stadium-style seating as well as renovated positional meeting rooms. Changes to the locker room included the creation of a new team lounge, as well as new lockers, updated graphics and audio/visual equipment.

Prior to the 2009 season, SMU installed new integrated video and audio system in Ford Stadium, with a Daktronics videoboard that measures approximately 32 feet high by 45 feet wide, and a custom sound system.

Current Mustang Club donors and season ticket holders have until April 1 to submit requests for one of the new suites or Hall of Champions Club seating. After that date, requests will be fulfilled in order based on the Mustang Club Priority Points system. Donation levels and pricing for the new premium options are consistent with current suite and Stadium Club pricing at Ford Stadium.
