The University of Hawaii released four renderings on Tuesday of what it envisions as the new Clarence T.C. Ching Athletics Complex once $8.3 million in renovations, to make it viable for official football competition, are completed.
The renderings include new grandstand seating along the makai sideline — across from the existing concrete bleacher seating on the mauka side — and in the Diamond Head end zone. There are also a handful of hospitality suites and a scoreboard projected into the aerial images where they do not currently exist.
UH now projects the seating capacity at 9,000 for the upcoming 2021 season, not 10,000 as previously estimated, although UH Athletic Director David Matlin told Pacific Business News during a PBN Dialogue Interview he expects that to be expanded to 15,000 capacity in subsequent years as the Rainbow Warriors play there.
