Jones AT&T Stadium is currently undergoing a $200 million renovation project, which includes the development of a brand-new south end zone and the construction of the Womble Football Center. Texas Tech University broke ground following the 2022 football season and construction is set to continue till the 2024 season.
This season, fans can experience improved cell service with AT&T, new turf, new grab-and-go and convenience stations and new LED lighting which enables the stadium to conduct light shows.
This renovation could not only make The Jones “the premier football facility in the Big 12 Conference and nationally,” according to Director of Athletics Kirby Hocutt, but it will ensure that the iconic Double T scoreboard is preserved, as Texas Tech will debut a new scoreboard.
South End Zone
The first floor will feature home and visiting locker rooms at field level, along with a 7,200 square-foot club area designed to welcome Red Raiders onto the field and provide fans with unique opportunities to interact with players.
The second floor will include the main concourse, lodge boxes and a 6,000-plus square foot multi-purpose walkthrough area designed to allow for large-scale indoor team strategy implementation, instruction and technique evaluation. Additionally, the second floor will connect to the skybridge, housing many of the football program’s meeting spaces, including individual position rooms and the Spike Dykes Team Meeting Room.
The third floor will include offices for the coaches and staff and will connect to the Womble Football Center and the Sports Performance Center through a skybridge.
The fourth floor will feature additional premium suite options.
Womble Football Center:
The Womble Football Center is to be constructed on the same land that currently occupies the present Football Training Facility. Texas Tech plans to expand to Sixth Street to further increase the overall square footage of the facility. With two floors and additional square footage, Texas Tech plans to maintain its football strength and conditioning and sports medicine and equipment areas on the main level of the Womble Football Center.
According to Texas Tech, “between the south end zone project and the Womble Football Center, the two facilities will contain space for both recruiting and players’ lounges, a new player locker room, a television studio for gameday and social media content as well as a significant investment into technology through digital signage and displays.”
Once this project is completed, there will be an additional 300,000 square feet added to the stadium. With this addition, fans can expect a modernized entrance on game day, premium end zone seating, new digital signage and displays, new suites and large boxes as well as many other amenities.
In recent years, Texas Tech University has invested a significant amount of money to improve its athletics department including:
- $48 million Sports Performance Center (Indoor Football & Track)
- $32 million Dustin R. Womble Basketball Center
- Cash Family Sports Nutrition Center
These projects are a few of many construction sites around town. Lubbock is growing! For more information about Lubbock, follow us on social media at @lubbockeda or check out our website at lubbockeda.org.
