    DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) — The University of Northern Iowa's athletic director says the school needs to make improvements to the UNI-Dome in Cedar Falls.

    Troy Dannen told The Des Moines Register Wednesday that renovations to the stadium will be part of a broader campaign that is “a couple of years” away.

    Although it's too early to talk about costs, Dannen says renovations to the dome, opened in 1976, would be a “low eight-figure project.”

    Dannen says the stadium needs wider concourse areas, premium seating and larger restrooms. He noted there have been few changes to the dome since it opened, though $1.2 million is being spent on a scoreboard upgrade in the stadium and in the neighboring McCloud Center.

    The dome's current seating capacity of 16,300 likely wouldn't change much.
