TALLAHASSEE, FL (WTXL) - Florida State said they will unveil more than $95 million in improvements to Doak Campbell Stadium.

Florida State University said they will celebrate the opening of the Champions Club and enhancements to Doak Campbell Stadium with a weekend of season opening festivities. Much of the stadium was funded by the Champions Club, a dynamic club seat section built into the south end zone of stadium.

The improvements include a 58 foot-by-120 foot scoreboard that is believed to be the highest definition board in the nation and a state-of-the-art sound system. More than 400,000 square feet of stadium seating decks have been also repaired and painted as well as all 44 restroom buildings.

With over 5,800 club seats, the Seminoles now have one of the largest premium club seat sections in college football. 

The event schedule is as follows:

Friday, September 9: The commemoration begins with a ticketed VIP event from 6 to 9 p.m. at the Champions Club. President John Thrasher and members of the FSU administration as well as principals for the Design-Build team — Childers, EMI and Rosser — will be available for comments. FSU also will reveal the Seminoles' new scoreboard and other audio/visual features new to Doak Campbell Stadium.

Saturday, September 10: Photo opportunities will also be available on game day with the club opening at 9:30 a.m. for a 12:30 p.m. kickoff.
