LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- The University of Louisville is set to provide an update on the expansion of Papa John's Cardinal Stadium Thursday. 

A press conference is set for Feb. 4 to give an update on the slated expansion of the university's football complex

Vice-President/Director of Athletics Tom Jurich and Senior Associate AD Mark Jurich will talk about the plans for 'closing the bowl.'

The expansion will enclose the north end zone, create multiple new fan amenities and enlarge and enhance the training facilities for the football team. 

About 10,000 additional seats will be added with the expansion, creating a unique look in the end zone structure for the stadium and increasing the total seating capacity to 65,000.
