Ga State Football Stadium

Photos are starting to filter out of the alterations Georgia State is completing, turning Turner Field into their new football stadium.
Dugouts were removed and a new grandstand erected in right field,
with four light stanchions behind.  
View from the north end zone. A new press box and coaches boxes were added at the 50 yard line in the west club level.
The Braves old 755 Club, renamed The University Club, fits perfectly above the north end zone stands, offering a great view of the field.
It will be used for entertaining and recruiting.
Both the stadium and the field will be renamed
once Georgia State sells the naming rights to sponsors.

View from home plate. The Braves old jumbotron becomes the seventh largest scoreboard in college football.
Georgia State holds a scrimmage in the new stadium on Thursday August 17. The Corky Kell High School Football Classic moves over from the old Georgia Dome, with two games on Friday August 18 and five more on Saturday August 19. The Panthers open the season on August 31 against Tennessee State. If the city of Atlanta can get its act together they will college parking fares for less than ten events a year, after failing to negotiate a new deal for the Braves 80 plus yearly dates.
