Amon G. Carter Stadium


Built in 1930, Amon G. Carter Stadium has not undergone a major renovation since 1956. The renovation will allow TCU to enhance the game day experience for all fans by improving accessibility and crowd flow, enhancing seating to provide better views of the field, and significantly improving concession stands, elevators, restrooms and lighting. The re-developed Amon G. Carter Stadium will feature suites, club seats and improved fan amenities in many areas – new and more comfortable seating, wider concourses, new and improved restrooms and concessions areas, handicap accessible accommodations, elevators and escalators to move patrons among levels, and new lighting. Additionally, the stadium will feature a new press box. Renovations began on the west side and north end zone following the 2010 season. Renovations for the east side began following the 2011 season and complete the stadium renovation project by the beginning of the 2012 football season. For more information, please visit Stadium
