The O’Dome’s renovations are scheduled to be completed for commencement ceremonies on December and the start of Florida’s SEC play in January 2017. The $64.5 million project includes seat backs for all lower bowl seats, a renovation to the concourses and a center-hung scoreboard.
The arena picked up its corporate sponsor earlier this month, when Exactech agreed to pay $5.9 million over 10 years for the naming rights. The company has the right to extend the deal an additional five years at a cost of $3.5 million.
