When Memphis kicks off against Ole Miss August 31 there will be three new party decks for fans to enjoy, according to a source. 

The plan is for the premium seats to take up space across the north end zone under the smaller scoreboard. There will be an area for fans to enjoy food and alcohol. No prices or possible capacity numbers were immediately available. 

The Memphis Express included two in Liberty Bowl Memorial Stadium for their home opener Saturday night against the Arizona Hotshots. They are sponsored by various liquor companies, and are designed to provide a more fun experience for fans. 

Normally, the cheapest seats are in the north end zone. At various times the north or south end zones have had tarps over them. Plans are not finalized yet, but season ticket holders will most likely end up with better seats at a similar price if displaced. 

Rutgers added a similar feature which included a private bartender and a socializing area. SMU also announced a party deck in place of their student section before last season. It also sits in SMU's north end zone. 

Memphis continues to try and add enhancements to the Liberty Bowl. First it was chair backs. Then it was $2 million renovations that included a revamped home locker room.
