Tulane University – New Orleans, LA
The new 30,000-seat Yulman Stadium replaced the Mercedes-Benz Superdome as the home of the Tulane Green Wave football program after 39 years.
Situated on the University’s Uptown campus, the stadium features 4,500 premium seats among two elevated club decks – the Jill H. and Avram B. Glazer Family Club and the Westfeldt Terrace. There is a large-scale meeting space located on the ground-level as well as an entry space area known as the Athletes Plaza used for events and activities. The stadium was designed and constructed with future growth in mind and the ability to expand by 5,000-10,000 seats in the east sideline and north end zone areas.
