Regents approve stadium North Side Complexdesign documents
Texas State University

February, 2011

The expansion of Texas State University’s Bobcat Stadium cleared another hurdle Friday as the Texas State University System Board of Regents approved the design development documents prepared by the O’Connell Robertson architecture firm.

            Construction on the North Side Complex is scheduled to begin in May, although the actual start-up date is contingent on the completion of the new track and field stadium currently under construction near Bobcat Stadium. It will be completed by the start of the 2012 football season.

            The North Side Complex will provide approximately 13,000 new seats located in the north end zone, bringing the capacity of Bobcat Stadium to between 28,000 and 30,000. The expansion will include an upper and lower level and will connect the east and west sides of the stadium. It will entail the replacement of the existing visitors locker room.

            The field level will include offices, new ticketing stations and a bookstore/fan shop. Included is a large plaza area that can be used for public gatherings and special events.

            The estimated project cost of the North Side Complex project is $33 million.

            Texas State’s football program will move to the Football Bowl Subdivision (the highest level of college football competition) in 2012. It will join the Western Athletic Conference at that time.

            The Texas State University System is governed by a nine member Board of Regents appointed by the Governor. In addition, a nonvoting student regent is appointed annually to the Board. The Texas State University System is the oldest multi-campus system in Texas and plays a critical role in the educational and economic development of the state. Its eight component institutions are Texas State University-San Marcos, Lamar University, Sam Houston State University, Sul Ross State University, Sul Ross State University Rio Grande College, Lamar Institute of Technology, Lamar State College-Orange and Lamar State College-Port Arthur.
