The MSU trustees will vote on a proposed $18 million renovation to Spartan Stadium. The renovation calls for locker rooms for teams and coaches, another locker room for officials, an equipment room, a recruiting room and a media center.
Michigan State University trustees are scheduled to vote on $18 million worth of renovations to Spartan Stadium, the Detroit Free Press reports. The proposed renovations focus on the north end of the stadium and call to add a two-level building, including locker rooms for teams and coaches, another locker room for officials, an equipment room, a recruiting room and a media center.
Currently, Spartan Stadium has locker rooms for teams but none for officials, and conducts media interviews in portable trailers. MSU deputy athletic director Greg Ianni said the Spartans have "probably...the worst locker room situation in the conference," adding that they are unable to properly support the people who work the games.
The MSU athletic program is self-sufficient, so the proposed renovations depend on the program's ability to raise the funding. The team recently completed a $10 million renovation that included new video boards.
