UNIVERSITY OF RICHMOND, Va. – A new era of University of Richmond football will kick off this fall and Robins Stadium will look a little different for fans coming out to root on the Spiders.

Robins Stadium will see two new changes with additional Red Zone Hospitality Areas being added to field level and the student section now being in the East grandstand.

“We take the feedback we receive from our fans and students very seriously and this new configuration is a response to the evolving fan experience model in college football,” Assistant Athletic Director for Marketing and Fan Experience Scott Warner said.

Spider students will now be immersed in the full fan experience through new seating areas in the East grandstand amongst the rest of the Spider faithful. With an improved audio experience, a closer location to the concession stands and improved sight lines, the students will have a totally different gameday experience this fall at Robins Stadium.

"We are very excited about the change in location for the student section. We think this will help bridge generations of Spiders and help keep the Richmond spirit alive by having all our fans cheer together," Westhampton College Student Government President Chiara Solitario and Richmond College Student Government President Abbas Abid said. “We're looking forward to some great turnouts next season and we're excited to support our athletes, friends, and fellow students on the field!"

“Student participation is important to football Saturdays in the fall and we are listening to the student's feedback by providing them an opportunity to be immersed in the full experience and enjoy new sight lines to follow the action,” Warner added.

The two new Red Zone Hospitality Areas will be on the south side of Robins Stadium, in the same location as the old student seating.

The hospitality spaces are available on a game-by-game basis for groups to rent with catering and bar services available for any group or organization looking to see great college football from field level. The areas include TVs, dining areas and high top tables to socialize with friends and coworkers on Saturdays this fall.

“We're excited to build upon the success of our Red Zone Hospitality Area with the addition of two new spaces for groups to watch the game from field-level, while enjoying first-class catering and bar service. It's an amazing opportunity for groups to get an up close look at the action while having space to socialize during the game,” Warner said.

As a result of this new seating configuration, the new Robins Stadium seating capacity will be approximately 8,200.
