Bowen told Street and Smith's SportsBusiness Journal that the plans call for a three-story hospitality and football support structure in the [north] end zone.
That part of the upgrades will cost approximately $8 million, according to Bowen. He said he has people interested in supporting the funding of the project, but wouldn't name anyone.
"It's been a very quiet campaign," he said.

Bowen told Inside Sparta that the facility will also include memoribilia donated by the late Spartan great Bill Walsh.
Further plans call for a replacement of the current speaker system and replacement of the portable Jumbotron with a larger - and permanent - version.
Also, negotiations are underway for the installment of the wall tapestry first seen by members of Inside Sparta. It must be noted that nothing has been approved at this time, but talks are underway.

Publisher's Note: This story has been corrected. The renovations will occur in the north endzone per the SJSU athletic department. The Sports Business Journal incorrectly stated the south endzone would be the location of the new structure.
