Purdue seeking fan, alumni input in Ross-Ade Stadium renovations
Purdue is looking to receive input from fans, alumni and students as it prepares to make renovations to Ross-Ade Stadium in the future.
Working with Elevate Sports Ventures, Purdue launched a survey to receive feedback regarding future renovation plans to the football stadium. It’s part of the “Your Ross-Ade Stadium” campaign the university is pushing.
“We are confident that Elevate’s professional sports experience, data-driven insights and cutting-edge methodology will lead to outcomes that excite current and prospective season-ticket holders, students, alumni and more,” Purdue athletic director Mike Bobinski said, according to the Journal & Courier.
The survey and study will focus on entry, communication, concessions, entertainment, parking, restrooms and game-day experiences, among other areas. The survey has been sent out via email to season ticket holders, alumni, multiple ticket purchases and students.
Purdue has seen an increase in season ticket sales since Jeff Brohm took over the program in 2017. The last two seasons, the Boilermakers have posted a 13-13 record and have earned bowl eligibility both years.
Ross-Ade Stadium received permanent light fixtures prior to the start of the 2017 season. Before that, the last renovation to the stadium came in 2001 and ended in 2003. The price for that makeover was approximately $70 million.
