What kinds of changes are coming to Beaver Stadium? Penn State fans will find out later this month.
The school said Thursday that the athletic department’s facilities master plan — which will likely feature changes to Beaver Stadium — will be announced March 13. The plan will be rolled out during the morning on social media, and athletic director Sandy Barbour will speak about upcoming changes at 3:30 p.m.
Barbour spoke about improving restrooms, comfort and concession stands among other things during Big Ten media days last July. Barbour also mentioned the possibility of Beaver Stadium reducing some of its nearly 107,000-seat capacity, according to PennLive’s Greg Pickel.
The enormous football stadium is not the only arena that Penn State could update. The athletic department called the master plan “a road map for Penn State Athletics to create conditions for success for its student-athletes and enhanced experiences for the Nittany Lions’ passionate and loyal students, alumni, staff and fans.”
Penn State has partnered with architecture firm Populous on this project.
