Michigan State Spartans Plan $20 Million Stadium Upgrade

The Michigan State Spartans should have a renovated stadium by May of 2014, according to the Detroit Free Press. Plans call for a renovation that totals $20-million of Spartan Stadium. The Michigan State Board of Trustees will have a meeting from June 19-21 where the construction should be approved.

From the Detroit Free Press report:

The $20 million is split between $14 million in donations — with more than $10 million raised so far — and $6 million of MSU athletic department funds, Hollis said. MSU hired IDS for the architecture and Barton Malow for the construction.

The plan calls for a two-level building at the north end of the stadium. On the first level will be locker rooms for both teams and coaches, a locker room for officials, an equipment room and a media center.

Part of the new two-story building will feature recruiting rooms for sports, while the rest of the second floor will include new restrooms and locker rooms.

The renovation will be just cosmetic and there don’t appear to be any plans to expand the seating capacity.
