Tennessee looking into stadium renovations

Neyland Stadium in Knoxville is one of the most recognizable buildings in all of college football.

It’s one of the toughest places to play when the Volunteers are rolling, and now it could be getting a nice face lift. The University of Tennessee has partnered with design company Populous to “conduct a comprehensive renovation plan and feasibility study” of the stadium.

The plan is to see what areas of the stadium should be updated, and what should be left alone. This plan, according to a release from the university, will push the stadium and the volunteers even further into an exciting future. It’s about putting the focus into the “long-term investment” of the stadium, the school said.

Tennessee recently completed a $140 million project on Neyland Stadium in 2010 that included interior and exterior renovations. There has been no word as to what the renovations could potentially entail, or if they will include the addition of more seats to the 102,455-seat venue.
