The illustrations for the new and improved Spartan Stadium were finally released to the public earlier this week, displaying the updates coming to the North End Zone. Construction is expected to begin as soon as the MSU Board of Trustees meets in June for the final approval. If all goes as planned, the project should be wrapped up by spring 2014.
According to the Detroit Free Press, out of the $20 million being spent, $14 million is coming from donors, while the other $6 million will be supplied by the MSU Athletic Department.
The renovations are a must, as Michigan State's facilities currently have small locker rooms and lack enough room for media trailers for interviews. The plan will include two stories at the North End, with the upper level consisting of concessions and restrooms. The lower level will include new locker rooms for players, coaches and officials along with an equipment room and media center.
