This is one of my criticisms of the SDS reinvention. Since they planned to reduce the stadium capacity and demo the lower bowl down to dirt, they could have added much more leg room while achieving their goals.
A case study on the Cards stadium described how the designers assembled demographically selected focus groups for each type of seating area and collected design input. Focus groups later road tested mock-up seating sections until the access and seat comfort was optimized.
The case study claimed the design goals included the stadium as an investment to create a long term fan base. It worked. Through good years and bad, the Cards have averaged about 94% capacity utilization. I think the ASU goal was to create $ million executive suites and to bring the rest of the stadium up to 1980 standards.
