UNI AD calls for UNI-Dome improvements

The University of Northern Iowa's athletic director says the school needs to make improvements to the UNI-Dome in Cedar Falls.

Troy Dannen said Wednesday that renovations to the stadium will be part of a broader campaign that is "a couple of years" away.

Although it's too early to talk about costs, Dannen says renovations to the dome, opened in 1976, would be a "low eight-figure project."

Dannen says the stadium needs wider concourse areas, premium seating and larger restrooms.  He noted there have been few changes to the dome since it opened, though $1.2 million is being spent on a scoreboard upgrade in the stadium and in the neighboring McLeod Center.

The dome's current seating capacity of 16,300 likely wouldn't change much.
