The University of Utah Board of Trustees voted unanimously Tuesday to approve an $80 million non-state revenue bond to upgrade and expand Rice-Eccles Stadium. The trustees’ approval comes as the U.S. Olympic Committee prepares to conduct site visits and gauge public support for hosting a future Winter Games, likely 2030. On Monday, Reno-Tahoe, one of Salt Lake City’s competitors to host another Winter Games, dropped out of the running. The stadium’s current capacity is approximately 45,800, although it held 47,825 people for a football game against the University of Michigan in 2015, according to Wikipedia. It is one of the smaller stadiums among PAC-12 universities. – Marjorie Cortez, KSL. Read More.
