Benson Field—The state of the art synthetic turf field will feature green and white checkerboard end zones, harkening back to historic Tulane Stadium. The field turf will be similar to that used in the best professional and collegiate stadiums around the country.

Jill H. and Avram A. Glazer Family Club–This space is the premium donor and spectator environment for the stadium. It features approximately 1,500 chair back seats, two club rooms with direct field-views, a sports bar, expanded concession offerings, restrooms and a large space for gathering, similar in scale to the Kendall Cram Room of the Lavin Bernick Center. It connects to the Club Decks and to the Hertz Center Hall of Fame.

Athletes Plaza–This becomes the quadrangle for Athletics and the outdoor forecourt for Yulman Stadium, the Hertz Center and the Wilson Center. It will be used for pep rallies, pre-game festivities and post-game celebrations. It’s also envisioned as a space to complement campus-wide public areas like the LBC and Newcomb Quads.

Meeting Hall–A large meeting facility on the ground level of the stadium which will serve as additional game day hospitality. The entire university community will use this space year-round; for classes, large meetings and special functions. It also will serve as study hall space for student-athletes.

Mullen Letterwinners Lounge–A lounge environment adjacent to the Meeting Hall that serves as a display space highlighting signature moments in Tulane athletics history. It can also serve as a breakout area for the Meeting Hall.

Club Decks–There are two elevated club decks on the home side with glass railings and drink rails. These two environments are envisioned as group gathering spots for a wide variety of groups; corporate sponsors, community clubs and organizations, fraternities, sororities, student and alumni organizations, etc. which can be catered.

Westfeldt Terrace –This covered, open-air space offers terrific field views from every angle. This level includes rail seating on the concourse edge, approximately 3,000 seats with backs, and premium New Orleans cuisine/concessions. As a bonus, this level affords a panoramic vista of the New Orleans skyline in the distance.
