Last month, Purdue demolished the south end zone bleachers at Ross-Ade Stadium. It is unknown what the finished project will look like, but the school Tuesday released renderings of a new South End Zone Patio, a temporary addition while the major renovation is designed and completed.
A “sensational addition” to the Purdue game-day experience, the 3,200-square-foot patio can hold 1,500 people and will be open to season-ticket holders and Purdue students who have purchased the VIP Card. It will open one-and-a-half hours before kickoff and close at the end of the game.
In addition to featuring pergolas, patio-style furniture and six 46-inch televisions, fans will be able to purchase beer and wine.
