Penn State is planning to change Beaver Stadium inside and out.
The school’s athletic department announced plans to add a brick facade to the home of Penn State football and said capacity at Beaver Stadium would dip from about 107,000 to “roughly” 103,000 once it is renovated. Monday morning, the athletic program announced that the stadium would be getting “extensive renovations” and that the capacity would be reduced.

The renovations to Beaver Stadium are part of a 20-year “facility master plan” that the school rolled out on Monday. Renovations are not expected to take place at the home of Penn State football for at least five years.
Part of the extensive renovations laid out earlier included additions of concession stands and bathrooms and updated seating at the stadium that was last renovated in 2001.
