Penn State’s Beaver Stadium is one of the most iconic stadiums in all of America. And, as the home to a Blue Blood program, it is instantly recognizable to so many college football fans.
Beaver Stadium is the 2nd biggest stadium in America, behind Michigan Stadium, with a capacity of over 106,000 and an all-time attendance record of 110,889.
It’s also home to the annual White-Out, considered to be one of the can’t-miss events in all of American sports.

Here are some more details on Friday’s announcement.
Penn State President Neeli Bendapudi announced during her remarks to the Penn State Board of Trustees on Friday that the university officially intends to consider a multi-phase renovation project for Beaver Stadium rather than build anew. This project would not only impact game day operations and fan experiences during football season but also would occur with the intention of expanding the out-of-season usage and flexibility of the stadium…
The renovation plan for Beaver Stadium, which is still being finalized, must be brought before the full board for a vote in the near future. When that is remains to be seen. Additionally, financial projections and funding timelines are still in progress according to Bendapudi.
Hopefully, it turns out great.
