The Daily Fix recently asked college football fans what features stadiums should have as they’re being rebuilt. The top two answers were comfortable seats and restrooms. Plenty of restrooms.
“‘Plentiful—and I mean plentiful—restrooms that are clean! I dehydrate myself at games to avoid spending a full football quarter in line for a stall,’ wrote Brenda Fletcher, a fan of the Georgia Bulldogs, who was reminded of the challenges women face at major sporting events after watching a recent Dolphins game at Sun Life Stadium.”
Concerning seats, fans want wide bucket ones with plenty of leg room so they don’t have to stand up when someone passes. (By the way, whenever I have to pass someone in a seat, I’m always reminded of this Letters From a Nut letter.)
Other features fans want include clear sight lines to the field, hi-def Jumbotrons with instant replay without advertisements, and Wi-fi and smartphone apps that allow them to order food from their seats (people really do not want to get up!)
Please check out The Daily Fix for what fans want banned from stadiums, and let us know if you agree or what items you’d like to see featured in stadiums.
