“Beaver Stadium will get a little bit smaller,” Athletic Director Sandy Barbour told Blue White Illustrated Wednesday. “As you look at doing a wider seat and a longer tread, there’s no way not to get smaller. I don’t think it will be significant, but this seems to be the direction folks are going.”
Barbour reportedly could not pinpoint a specific new capacity, but mentioned that she anticipates capacity will remain at more than 100,000.
“The end product is going to be as good as the process, the input and the collaboration along the way, and it’s been outstanding,” Barbour said of the university’s partnership with Populous.
