Georgia Tech planning improvements for fan experience


Improvements for fan experience are on the way for Georgia Tech football games next season at Bobby Dodd Stadium, with more en route over the next six seasons.

Tech announced its plan for fan experience enhancements Wednesday, including additional premium seating and improvements in general seating options, cellular and Wi-Fi connectivity and stadium audio.

For the coming season, the athletic department will increase the points of sale for concessions, add stations for filling water bottles and improve directional signage around the stadium. Tech also is instituting a clear-bag policy and providing additional benefits for season-ticket holders, such as discounts on concessions and game-day merchandise.

Season tickets go on sale Feb. 22.
