Michigan State’s south end zone is getting a facelift.
On Friday, MSU’s Board of Trustees approved plans to renovate the south end zone at Spartan Stadium. A one-story structure will be added, complete with new restrooms and concession stands. There will also be a new pavilion in the south end zone.
The addition is expected to be completed by fall 2017, according to Michigan State officials.

Athletic department funds will reportedly finance the project, though no specific dollar amount has been specified. It won’t eliminate any seats in Spartan Stadium, either. The only drawback of the project is that it’ll eliminate 100 parking spots.
MSU upgraded its north end zone in 2014, which cost an estimated $24.5 million. That project involved upgrading MSU’s locker rooms and media center.
The Spartans ranked sixth in the B1G and 19th nationally in home attendance with an average of 74,667 fans. Despite the fact that MSU struggled to three wins, it slightly increased its attendance.
