Notes on the new Stadium:

Material- 240,000 concrete blocks, 700,000 new bricks, 500 cubic yards of mortar, 25,000 cubic yards of cast-in-place concrete, 5 miles of new handrails and guardrails and 8.5 miles of redwood seating. More than 3,500 sheets of drawings were used. Eleven new openings, for a total of 31, were cut into the old stadium brick exterior to allow fans to connect the old and new lower concourse areas. All existing rest rooms were refinished. The lettering at the north and south canopy as well as the interlocking ND logo at the top of the press box west face are gold laminate. Previously the 40th largest college stadium at 59,075, Notre Dame Stadium now ranks 15th in the country in size. The University of Notre Dame finished eighth nationally in attendance among the 111 NCAA Division I-A football-playing institutions in 1997.
