Benson Field—The state-of-the-art synthetic turf field will feature green and white checkerboard end zones, harkening back to historic Tulane Stadium. The field turf will be similar to that used in the best professional and collegiate stadiums around the country.
Jill H. and Avram A. Glazer Family Club—This space is the premium donor and spectator environment for the stadium. It features approximately 2,300 chair back seats, two club rooms with direct field views, a sports bar, expanded concession offerings, restrooms and a large space for gathering, similar in scale to the Kendall Cram Lecture Hall of the Lavin Bernick Center. It connects to the Club Decks and to the Hertz Center Hall of Fame.
Athletes Plaza—This becomes the quadrangle for Athletics and the outdoor forecourt for Yulman Stadium, the Hertz Center and the Wilson Center. It will be used for pep rallies, pregame festivities and postgame celebrations. It’s also envisioned as a space to complement campuswide public areas like the LBC and Newcomb Quads.
Athletes Walk—This ground-level connection between the Reily Center and Wilson Center doubles as an animated game day concourse and primary student circulation route for this portion of campus.
Multi-Purpose Hall—A large, open room on the ground level that allows for pre- and postgame functions. The entire university community will use it year-round.
Letter Winners Club--A lounge environment adjacent to the Multi-Purpose Hall that serves as a display space highlighting signature moments in Tulane athletics history. It can also serve as a breakout area for the Multi-Purpose Room.
Club Decks—There are two elevated club decks on the home side with tiered rail seating, and open decks offering premium concessions. These two environments are envisioned as group gathering spots for a wide variety of Tulane fan groups, community clubs and organizations, fraternities, sororities, student and alumni organizations, etc.
Upper Level Club—This open-air space is covered by a canopy and offers terrific field views throughout. This level includes rail seating on the concourse edge, approximately 2,900 seats with backs and premium concessions. As a bonus, this level affords a panoramic vista of the New Orleans skyline in the distance.
