EAST LANSING, Mich. (WXYZ) - Spartan Stadium will soon receive what many alumni say is "a much needed" renovation. On Friday, the Michigan State Board of Trustees approved a $24.5 million addition to the north end of Spartan Stadium.
The new, 50,000-square-foot, two-story addition will include locker rooms for the home and visiting teams and coaches, an officials' locker room, renovated gates for entrance that agree with Homeland Security recommendations and also new media rooms. Currently media interviews are conducted in trailers at Spartan Stadium.
The second level of the structure will have extra restrooms connected to the stadium's concourse and a recruiting room for all sports. The addition will be funded through athletic department funds and donations.
The addition is expected to be completed in the summer of 2014, just in time for the football season.
