Fargodome looking to expand space

FARGO, N.D. (AP) — An indoor football stadium and convention facility in North Dakota's largest city could be expanding.

FARGO, N.D. (AP) — An indoor football stadium and convention facility in North Dakota's largest city could be expanding.

The Forum newspaper reports that Fargodome officials are looking to add a 50,000-square-foot, two-level events center to the southeast corner of the facility.

The project could include a 6,000-square-foot club room on the third floor and a similarly sized sky lounge on the fourth floor that would overlook the arena floor.

Fargodome Authority Board President Darrell Vanyo says he believes the board would be willing to dedicate half of the dome's $34 million reserves toward the project.

Rob Sobolik, the Fargodome manager, says he expects the project to cost more than $17 million, so other funding sources would be needed.

The last major addition to the building was a $6.8 million lobby in 2000.
