The Vanderbilt Commodores football recently announced it is accepting deposits for the South end zone premium seating experiences at its home ground – the FirstBank Stadium in Nashville, Tennessee (US).

‘’ further stated that the supporters have the exclusive opportunity to be among the first to secure the club seats for the 2025 football season as the Vandy United keeps reimagining the FirstBank Stadium for better and better gameday experiences.

The Vanderbilt Commodores football program represents the Vanderbilt University in the sport of American football. The Commodores compete in the Football Bowl Subdivision (FBS) of the National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) and the East Division of the Southeastern Conference.

The 39,790-capacity FirstBank Stadium is a football stadium located in Nashville, Tennessee (US). Completed in 1922 as the first stadium in the South to be used exclusively for college football, it is the home of the Vanderbilt University (a private research university in Nashville, Tennessee) football team.
Indianapolis (US)-based the National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) is a nonprofit organization that regulates student athletics among about 1,100 schools in the United States and one in Canada. It also organizes the athletic programs of the colleges and helps over 500,000 college student-athletes who compete annually in college sports.

The NCAA Division I Football Bowl Subdivision (FBS), formerly known as Division I-A, is the highest level of college football in the United States. The FBS consists of the largest schools in the National Collegiate Athletic Association. As of the 2024 season, there are 10 Conferences and 134 schools in FBS.

Birmingham (US)-based the Southeastern Conference is an American college athletic Conference whose member institutions are located primarily in the South Central and Southeastern United States.

Commented Candice Storey Lee, Vice-Chancellor for Athletics and University Affairs and Athletic Director, “I’m excited to see another Vandy United cornerstone come to life. We’re committed to being the best in everything we do, from our student-athlete experience to our gameday experience in the FirstBank Stadium. Vandy United is rooted in what Commodores can achieve when we dare to grow, together. We are thankful for the support as we take another step forward in this new era of Vanderbilt Athletics.”

‘’ further stated that the new premium seating spaces are a centerpiece of Vandy United’s South end zone project, and they include a variety of innovative amenities. Whether cheering on the Commodores with family, reuniting with friends and alumni, or entertaining the coworkers and the associates, the supporters can choose from the club spaces, the living room boxes and the fully appointed luxury suites. In all, the new South end zone seating encompasses 20 suites and more than 1,000 club seats.

By making a $150 deposit per seat by June 30th, the supporters will be included in the initial seat selection for the 2025 Vanderbilt football season (North end zone premium seating will be open for the 2024 season). The seat deposits are for the club seats only (Field Club, Commodore Club, Loge Boxes, and Living Room Boxes). Deposits are non-refundable and do not guarantee seats, but they will be applied to the 2025 seat donation.

Completion of the South end zone project, which began in 2023 and includes the premium seating and a new multistory 130,000-square-foot facility, is a milestone in Vandy United’s FirstBank Stadium transformation. The new seating experiences offer a standard of comfort and amenities unmatched in our proud history and an opportunity for Vanderbilt’s most passionate supporters to take a leadership role in supporting the future of Vanderbilt Athletics.

Based on the successful introduction of the North end zone premium seating earlier this year, which saw seats sell out quickly, supporters are encouraged to act now.
