As the seat replacement project at the WVU Coliseum continues, it’s easy to see progress.
Crews are continuing to replace the Coliseum’s 50-year-old seats with newer seats that are a slightly darker blue. Take a peek inside the storied basketball arena to see where the project stands:
WVU will replace all seats inside the Coliseum at a one-to-one ratio, meaning the venue will maintain its seating capacity of 14,000. Right now, upgrades continue on seats in the arena’s lower bowl.
These Coliseum upgrades are made possible by a leadership gift from Ken and Jennifer Mason of Alma, West Virginia. The new seats are scheduled to be in place by the start of the 2020-21 basketball season.
