This is the No.1 priority of most Penn State Football fans.
The majority of Beaver Stadium’s seating is still bleachers, uncomfortable ones at that. While it’s unlikely that the stadium will fully go from bleachers to seats, the space between each assigned seat on the bleachers will likely increase.
The current distance between seats makes it difficult for many adult sized fans to sit next to each other.
While this will make for a more comfortable experience at the stadium, it will decrease the capacity of Beaver Stadium. James Franklin and his program have made the size of Beaver Stadium a recruiting pitch, using the hashtag 107kStrong.
Ideally, the capacity can still stay above 100,000, which would still be an awesome number, and larger than the vast majority of other stadiums in the country. It will be disappointing to see Beaver Stadium fall from the rank of the second largest stadium in the continent, but it’s the right move long term.
Also look for the stadium to either add seats backs to each seat or make it more accessible for fans to get ahold of them if they would like them on their seat.
