Regents approval Martin Stadium upgrades



PULLMAN, Wash. (AP) — The Board of Regents of Washington State University has given final approval for an $80 million project to add premium seats and a new press box on the south side of Martin Stadium.

Construction will begin Monday, following the final home football game of the season Saturday against Utah.

The athletics department plans to have the press box completed before the first home game of next season. The luxury seating should be completed soon after.

The $80 million is coming from increased television revenues, ticket sales, donations and bonds.
