Now the stadium is getting a much-needed re-design with a little helping hand: none other than that of Nike founder and Oregon alumnus Phil Knight. Knight and wife Penny are leading the private donations — the amounts of which haven’t been disclosed — for the stadium’s renovations, which are expected to be completed in 2020.... One completed in a couple of years, Hayward Field will feature room for 12,900 fans — up from the current seating capacity of 10,500 — and the ability to expand to seat 30,000 fans for 2021’s IAAF World Championships. Other details will include the likes of classrooms, labs, and research facilities for students and faculty, as well as a nine-lane track for competition." https://hypebeast.com/2018/4/hayward-field-oregon-new-stadium-design-phil-knight We may have stopped their conference winning streak but Phil's money continues to feed the beast. gubo&palanka likes this.
