FORT WORTH - A wrecking ball was in place to begin demolition on the east side stands of TCU's Amon G. Carter Stadium Monday morning. The structure was taken down in sections, starting at the north end.
The new east side will feature a double deck similar to what has been created in the north end zone. The height of the upper deck will be at the level of the speakers that currently sit on the light poles of the existing stadium.
The east side renovation will enable TCU to have a fully renovated Amon G. Carter Stadium in time for the 2012 season, which marks the Horned Frogs' first year in the Big 12 Conference.
Capacity for the completed Amon G. Carter Stadium will be 43,000 with expansion opportunities that could allow for 50,000 or more in the future.
