The University of South Florida announced this week that it will be changing contractors for the building of a $340 million football stadium. 

According to, USF has selected Manhattan Construction Company, H.J. Russell & Company and DuCon as the new construction managers, moving on from the signed deal it has with Barton Marlow to build the on-campus stadium. 

Architectural firm Populous will remain on as the designer of the facility. 

“The selected team has worked extensively with college and professional stadiums throughout the country, numerous facilities in the Tampa Bay region and state of Florida and has previously partnered on more than $1.2 billion in projects with USF’s design team, Populous,” USF said in a statement. 

The new stadium will hold up to 50,000 fans and include premium seats, a dedicated student section, large concourses, as well as a renovation of the team's practice facilities.

“Choosing a construction management team is big step forward in our process to deliver a world-class stadium that will transform the future of our university and the on-campus experience,” said USF vice president of athletics Michael Kelly and USF Foundation CEO Jay Stroman, the co-chairs of the stadium planning committee. “After conducting a thorough review of each proposal we received for the project, we’re excited to get started on our partnership with a team that brings a proven track record of success.”
