The California Memorial Stadium Campaign will raise funds to preserve the historic character of the stadium while bringing it up to world-class standards — with respect to student-athlete needs, fan amenities and safety — in keeping with the Berkeley tradition.
The first component of the project will be anchored by the top-caliber Student-Athlete High Performance Center, built just outside the stadium’s historic west wall.
A 142,000 square-foot facility, the center will provide locker rooms, meeting rooms and offices for football and 12 of Cal’s Olympic sports. It will also house a state-of-the-art training, applied sports science and medicine complex for year-round access by approximately 450 student-athletes. In addition, the new training complex will feature an academic center where all student-athletes will have access to the resources they need to succeed in their studies as much as they do in competition.
Cal fans can also expect to reap rewards. New pedestrian plazas and beautifully landscaped open spaces will give the Cal community additional gathering places and will better connect the stadium’s western approach with the rest of campus. Plans are also being developed to improve restroom facilities, seating, other fan amenities and game-day parking in Phase II of the Stadium Master Plan.
