LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Signs of progress are apparent at the site of the Papa John's Cardinal Stadium expansion.

U of L football tweeted out pictures Tuesday of construction work underway on the stadium expansion. The $63 million upgrade will add 10,000 seats and more field level and club level suites. 

Originally ,the stadium expansion wasn't set to be finished until the 2019 season, but accelerated fundraising jumped the date forward to the start of the 2018 season. 

The Cardinals play their first game of this season on Sept. 2 against Purdue in Indianapolis.
