WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) -- Purdue's renovation plans for Ross-Ade Stadium are beginning, and it starts with your help.
Purdue and Elevate Sports Ventures will release a survey Friday to see what fans want for the planned large-scale renovations of Ross-Ade Stadium. Purdue launched the campaign Monday and is called "Your Ross-Ade Stadium." The data is expected to be collected from 100,000 stakeholders of the Boilermaker football program.
Participants will be able to weigh in on stadium entrances, communication, entertainment, parking, concourse design, restrooms and more.
The first wave of surveys will be sent by email on Jan 18 to season ticket holders, students, alumni and fans in Greater Lafayette, Indianapolis and Chicago. It will take 30 to 35 minutes to complete, according to Lara Weems, the Senior Director of Corporate Communications at HB Sports and Entertainment.
Ross-Ade stadium underwent a $70 million renovation from 2001 to 2003. Since then, Bermuda grass, a new video board and permanent lighting has been installed.
