CSU has started the process of hiring architects and engineers to begin the process for building a new on-campus football stadium. Advertisements indicate Colorado State University plans to hire for a “potential” project and goes on to say it’s for plans to build a 40,000 to 50,000-seat stadium in Fort Collins.

CSU’s Athletic Director, Jack Graham would like to see a  $100 million-$200 million stadium built with private funds by the start of the 2014 season, according to the Coloradoan

CSU officials say moving its losing football team to an on-campus replacement for the 32,500-seat Hughes Stadium west of campus will energize and engage students, alumni and the Fort Collins community. They say it will help recruit better players and coaches, and attract more out-of-state students and their tuition dollars.

In its request to hire an architecture/engineering firm, CSU asks for a firm to provide lead design services, including site selection, transportation, parking and cost estimates, along with “evaluating options for repurposing the existing stadium.”
