    Looking at an overhead view....the temporary seats inside are where the stairs are now on the north end. The jumbatron I suspect is at the apex of the north end.

    I didn't poo poo it so much as I didn't see how it would all fit....I guessed you had word on something so I wasn't surprised it was confirmed today.. There isn't a lot of room with the temporary stands going where they are.

    A scoreboard makes sense.

    It must have to do with the 'temporary' seats that are suppose to be where the ramp is. For the WC there are some new blocks added. I counted 2652 additional seats.

    I'll stop by next week and ask one of the workers for more details.

    Not sure where you put a Jumbotron on the north end.

    perhaps the upgraded jumbotron?

    See the world-class upgrade at the track and field stadium that birthed Nike


    Architecture firm SRG Partnership designed the space to bring fans closer to the action.

    I might have missed a small few....but it was pretty easy and fast to do looking at the maps for seats on sale.

    I guessed before even counting it was around 3000....

    At coffee Monday someone said they would hold 10,000 which I knew was absurd.

    So the capacity of Hayward is that plus 12,500 or 15,152.

    Indeed....probably why they didn't give any details 3 years ago when the new stadium plan was announced...they weren't worried about the Eugene people. The stadium is ideal for us.

    As far as I know, that total seating capacity is just over half the minimum supposedly required by World Athletics for a venue to host a World Championships.

    It is primarily a student dining area....so yes the ambiance is lacking.

    The bar area is much better. But it isn't the Wild Duck or McManaman's.

    But it is right across the street so I can imagine it being very popular on rainy or very hot days at Hayward. During the Trials we parked early near Hayward to get a good spot and hung out at McManaman's until it was time to go. A life saver especially the day it got to 111.
