The University of Michigan announced, today, the new capacity of newly renovated Michigan Stadium – 109,901.  Once again, Michigan Stadium will be the biggest football stadium in the United States when play kicks off this fall, beginning on September 4th against UConn. I do know that work will continue in the bowl of the stadium as seats and aisles are widened and handrails and other structural improvements are added.  This will take place over the next two seasons, at least, and when these changes occur some additional seating will be lost in the stadium.  So this 109,901 is a temporary number and it is not clear what the final number will in fact be.

I can’t wait to get up there for games this season.  The work on the stadium has looked great throughout and it will be great to finally get to use what we’ve all been waiting for.  We are taking part in the new construction – our new club seats are in section 302 and did not come cheaply.  We’ll be taking 8 people to each home game with 4 new club seats plus our existing 4 seats in the southwest corner of the stadium in section 18.  This will be a tailgate season to remember for sure and, hopefully, the product on the field is memorable (not forgettable) as well.

Let’s Go Blue!
