Stadium expands student section

The student section at Spartan Stadium will expand for the upcoming football season, MSU Athletic Communications announced Monday.

Roughly 2,300 seats will be added to the lower bowl while about 1,000 seats will be added to the upper bowl, associate athletics director Paul Schager said.

“We want to bring all of the student seats together,” he said. “From a management standpoint, we wanted clearly identified sections and we wanted to know where people are supposed to be.”

Last season, student ticket sales were the highest they’ve been in 20 years. The athletics department expects those numbers will continue to grow.

The wristband program implemented last season will remain in tact, Schager said.

The price for student tickets is $146 and includes an official 2008 “WE ARE ONE” football T-shirt.

Tickets can be ordered online at or by phone at (517)355-1610.
