Study projects $20M impact from stadium expansion
LAFAYETTE, La. - The expansion of Cajun Field will pump $20.2 million into the local economy and create an estimated 143 jobs, according to an economic development study released this past week.
Once complete, the expansion will nearly double seating in the stadium to about 62,000.
The project is part of the University of Louisiana-Lafayette's $115 million master plan for athletics.
The impact study was prepared by the Lafayette Economic Development Authority.
