Mississippi State continues to take steps toward the expansion of Davis Wade Stadium and today it will seek approval from the IHL board to begin the 80 million dollar project later this year.
The project would include an addition to the North endzone as well as improvements to the West concourse of DWS. The North endzone addition would consist of bowling in the end and increasing capacity by roughly 6,000. The area would also include box seating and suites.
“The addition will also house a new concourse with fan amenities and additional food service support for the stadium complex," as stated from the IHL Board meeting outline. "Structural provisions to allow for a future upper deck will also be included. Improvements to the West concourse will consist of the addition to the architectural façade, new service and maintenance level, new vertical circulation, and renovated restroom and concessional facilities.”
Later this week Mississippi State is expected to release renderings of the expansion and details of the construction process.
