UNIVERSITY OF UTAH, SALT LAKE CITY, UTAH
While the new stadium has been designed primarily for football, the ability to host special events such as rock concerts and soccer games was incorporated into the planning. The 2002 Winter Olympics Games’ requirements dictated that a northeast tunnel be added for direct access to the playing field and the roof of the Stadium Box designed to accommodate the world press. FFKR also anticipated the expansion of the stadium in the south end zone to complete the bowl configuration and the possible addition of a suite level at the top of the east bowl. Rice Stadium was renamed Rice-Eccles Stadium and opened for its inaugural game on September 11, 1998.
