Enhance the K-State Experience
The Shamrock Zone will transform the south concourse by providing a completely covered walkway area. For the first time in the history of Bill Snyder Family Stadium, there will be permanent concessions and restrooms on the south concourse. This will allow fans easier access to utilize the 24 new points of sale and the spacious 2,100 square foot men’s and women’s restrooms, while also alleviating congestion and lines to those facilities on the west and east sides of the stadium. Two new video boards will be added to the SW and SE corners of the stadium to mirror the two video boards on the north end of the stadium, along with adding a ribbon board underneath the new Shamrock Zone Club level. A new high-point sound system will be added to the top of the Shamrock Zone, along with numerous fill-in speakers to the south and east lower bowl to offer fans an enhanced audio experience on gameday.
A new 13,500 square foot club space will replace the current Legend’s Room area (7x larger!) and be accessed from the concourse at Bramlage or by using the newly created vertical circulations located on the west and east side of the space. The space will feature a large bar and buffet, showcasing massive 33’ x 13.5’ screens to watch your favorite Wildcat replays. A new kitchen will service fans at both football and basketball for the new lounge space with high ceilings, flat screen televisions, and plenty of seating and tables to enjoy food, drinks, and friends. On football gamedays, this space will be utilized for fans sitting in the new Shamrock Zone premium seats. Plans for this space include 318 club seats, 10 suites and 10 loge boxes. For men’s basketball games, the Shamrock Zone will serve as a club area from pre-game to post-game for Ahearn Fund members within a certain membership level (details to be determined).
Other improvements in Bramlage Coliseum include extending doors and walls at the NW and NE points of entry, adding nearly 4,500 square feet of new concourse space, as well as faster access to enter Bramlage. A new dining terrace will be built on the north end of Bramlage seating overlooking the basketball court, as well as cosmetic enhancements including limestone walls on the concourse.
