PROVO, Utah – BYU athletics has made some enhancements to LaVell Edwards Stadium.

On Thursday, BYU announced upgraded amenities catering to corporate sponsors at football games.

LES amenities will be available to BYU’s Corporate Sponsors

LaVell Edwards Stadium will now have a “Club 22” on the west side of LaVell Edwards Stadium. But the most visible upgrade is the “Champions Terrace,” an elevated platform linking LES’s north and east stands.

The Champions Terrace will feature lounge seating with a view of the field, canopy coverage, and access to amenities available throughout the game. The new area will host upwards of a hundred guests and be accessible to corporate partners in the Champions Club, which is the highest sponsorship level for BYU athletics.

Construction on the Champions Terrace began in the spring.

Back in January, BYU athletic director Tom Holmoe was asked if there was any consideration to expand seating capacity at LaVell Edwards Stadium as they prepare to enter the Big 12 Conference in 2023.

Holmoe, seven months ago, teased the newly announced corporate sponsorship updates.

“We’re looking at more hospitality and amenity areas. There are some things that we hope to do. We don’t really have immediate expansion plans,” Holmoe said.

Also, if you have dreams that LES will have a closed-in bowl configuration one day, don’t plan on that happening.

“As long as I’m here, we’re not putting seats in the corners. I think it’s silly to put seats in the worst part. Those would be the last seats to be bought,” Holmoe said in January. “I think that really right now, the supply and demand are going to be about right.”

Recent upgrades to LaVell Edwards Stadium

Last year, BYU added new scoreboards to the stadium that a corporate sponsor fully funded to BYU’s athletic department in NuSkin. In 2019, BYU added a mezzanine to connect the stadium’s upper deck.

Before that, BYU added an NFL-quality Wi-Fi service for everyone attending games at LES.

BYU’s first home game of the 2022 season is against defending Big 12 Champion Baylor Bears on September 10.
