The Premier On-Campus Experience

Chairbacks Only

Papa John's Cardinal Stadium, the home of Louisville football, is widely considered one of the premier, on-campus college football stadiums in the country following its expansion in 2009. Fans are treated to a one-of-a-kind feature with all 55,000 seats being of the chairback variety. No other university-owned and operated stadium in the nation can make that claim.

Every Team Has A New Facility Since '94

State-of-the-Art Venues

Every Cardinals sports team has a new facility since 1994, with most venues being built within the last 13 years. The state-of-the-art, 22,000-seat KFC Yum! Center has been the home of Louisville men's and women's basketball since opening in 2010. Facilities

Expansion Has Immediate Impact

Record-breaking Crowds

A $4 million expansion of baseball's Jim Patterson Stadium prior to the 2013 season turned immediate dividends for the Cardinals baseball team. Since adding 1,500 chairback seats and two-tiered ground level terraces among other amenities, the Cardinals have set four different attendance records including over 6,000 fans at the 2014 NCAA Super Regional on the way to Louisville's second-straight College World Series appearance.

Completed in February 2014, the $2.75 million expansion features a team clubhouse with a locker room, video room, and a players' lounge. With the addition of 200 chairback seats, the seating capacity of Dan Ulmer Stadium is now 1,000.
