KANSAS CITY, Mo. — Allen Fieldhouse will receive major upgrades this spring, the University of Kansas Athletics announced Wednesday.

The renovations will begin this spring and will be completed in two phases to accommodate for the 2023-2024 basketball season. The full project will be done by the fall of 2024.

Once the renovations are completed, Allen Fieldhouse will feature enhanced concessions — including a new Jayhawk Pub concept on the second level — and new LED lighting. The Jayhawk Pub will feature a variety of food options.

There will also be a new and expanded Rally House Team Store in the Booth Hall of Athletics.

A new center-hung scoreboard, LED sports lighting, a new sound system, new digital signage and upgraded Wi-Fi will be added, among other things.

“This makes the best and coolest place to play college basketball that much better," said Kansas men's basketball head coach Bill Self. "The fan experience will truly be enhanced, and our team will benefit greatly. We’ve always taken great pride in having the best fans and the best homecourt in the country. These major improvements inside the arena, and throughout all three floors of the concourse, ensure that Allen Fieldhouse will always be recognized as a top venue in America, regardless of sport.”

Full details on the renovations can be found on the KU Athletics website.
