The Cajuns Department of Athletics received an honorable donation of $2 million from IBERIABANK. IBERIABANK is a division of First Horizon Bank, through the Louisiana First Horizon Foundation donated to the highly-anticipated renovation of Cajun Field.
The gift is to secure the naming right’s of the new stadium’s West Concourse and Administrative Offices inside of Cajun Field.
IBERIABANK has been a long-time RCAF investor and supporter of the Cajuns, the Athletics department and Ragin’ Cajuns Sports Properties. Jerry Vascocu, who was recently promoted to Commercial Banking Executive for the combined company, is a current member of the Ragin’ Cajuns Athletic Foundation (RCAF) Board of Directors, and Jerry Prejean, Acadiana Market president, is a past RCAF Board Member.
The new west tower of the renovated facility will include premium suites, a luxurious club level and club seats, loge boxes, and press box. The excellent amenities will be accessible to Ragin’ Cajuns fans and will offer new avenues for their involvement with the football program and the Ragin’ Cajuns Athletics Foundation.
Premium suites include indoor private seating and available outdoor seating for suite holders and their guests. Other amenities include access to the climate-controlled club area, premium catered food and beverages, the ability to add additional food and drink, and a suite attendant to assist with any game day needs.
Loge boxes feature private outdoor seating and come with access to premium parking. Club seats will be assigned outdoor seating with exceptional chairs with armrests and beverage holders. Patrons in the loge boxes and club seats will also have access to the club area and all of its amenities.
The club area will provide food and drinks for more than 400 of the University’s student-athletes throughout the year as a dining facility.
Added on plans for the project are a new videoboard, lights, sound system, renovated west side seating, new east side façade and operational office spaces for Department of Athletics staff.
