Papa John's contributed the largest gift ever given to University of Louisville athletics when it donated $10 million for the school's football stadium expansion project on Monday.
The money will go towards the 21,000 seat expansion at Papa John's Cardinal Stadium, which is scheduled to be completed before the 2010 season. The expansion will increase the total number of seats at PJCS to 63,000.
Steve Kragthorpe called the gift "a tremendous day for Cardinal football."
Frankfort still has to approve the bonds, and don't be surprised if they take their time to do so. Regardless, this is a big step forward for the expansion process.
