Michigan State planning $20M renovation to Spartan Stadium
Michigan State is awaiting final approval from the Board of Trustees to begin work on $20 million in renovations of Spartan Stadium.
Michigan State is planning a $20 million renovation of Spartan Stadium, giving the football team an updated home for the 2014 season.
"It should be ready next spring, right around a year from now," Michigan State athletic director Mark Hollis told the Detroit Free Press.
Hollis said that the final approval on the project is expected during Michigan State's Board of Trustees retreat June 19-21. The $20 million cost is split between $14 million in donations and $6 million from athletic department funds.
Michigan State currently has small locker rooms for both teams at the north end of the stadium, with no locker room for officials or trailers for any additional media activity. According to the Detroit Free Press, the renovation plans include a new two-level building at the north end of the stadium with brand new locker rooms for the teams, a locker room for the officials, an equipment room and a media center.
The upper level of the building will feature new restrooms and concession stands connected to the stadium's concourse, as well as a recruiting room that will be made available to all of the Spartans' athletic teams.
Opened in 1923 as College Field, Spartan Stadium is one of the oldest Big Ten stadiums still in use. The school's last major renovation was completed in 2005 -- a $64 million project adding 24 luxury suites, 800 club seats and a redesigned grand entrance -- and the school recently unveiled a new video board in 2012.
