New Look Redbird Arena Includes Wider Seats, Beer

Sports

NORMAL, Ill. — When Redbird Arena reopens this fall, the seats will be wider and beer will flow at the concession stands.

A summer renovation project is installing wider seats with more cushioning and cup holders in the lower bowl. Increased handicap seating, loge seating and a luxury suite is also in the works.

Illinois State announced Thursday beer and wine will be solid at public concession stands for the first time at Redbird Arena and Hancock Stadium. The six million dollar renovation project is expected to be finished in time for ISU’s volleyball home opener in September.
