The Texas Longhorns are currently planning an expansion to the south end zone of Darrell K Royal-Texas Memorial Stadium, and there’s now an idea of what that may look like.
On Tuesday, Texas athletic director Chris Del Conte teased a preview of the potential expansion, and it’s safe to say that such a proposal would be a welcomed addition.

Texas recently detailed exactly what the school is hoping to implement during its renovation of the south end zone at DKR.
“The scope of this project is proposed to include new exclusive suites, clubs, open air concourses, restroom facilities, new coaches offices, a banquet kitchen, premium, Loge, and student seating, private game-day parking, branding graphics, Longhorn Network areas, Sports Medicine/Nutrition areas, hydrotherapy and other support spaces.”
If all goes according to plan, Texas hopes secure submission of qualification by May 3 after holding a pre-submittal conference last week.
As seen in the sample above, the renovation would replace the bleachers currently occupying the south end zone with additional seating, and a wider video board and multi-level decks would be included on each side of the video board.
It’s currently unclear what exactly the pictured proposal would include, but at the very least, it would serve as a significant upgrade to the current landscape at DKR.
