The Louisville Cardinals are going forward with expansion of Papa John’s Cardinal Stadium. Bowling in much of the North end zone will increase attendance by an estimated 12-thousand fans, bringing capacity to around 67,000.

It was speculated that Athletic Director Tom Jurich would want everything in place by 2019, when Notre Dame would be Louisville’s season opening opponent, but Jurich says he wants expansion to start ASAP.
