Penn State Athletics has announced it will partner with CAA ICON and Populous on a survey to further evaluate potential football stadium development options. This is the next phase in the Beaver Stadium Concept Study, which began in May of 2021.
Penn State has worked with both organizations before. CAA ICON helped with the construction of the Pegula Ice Arena while Populous has been helping out with the ICA Facilities Master Plan, which was announced in March 2017.
Select people will receive the survey via email. The survey is to help the Beaver Stadium study, to improve the longevity of the 63-year old stadium. Its’ goal is to review and evaluate current and upcoming required major maintenance projects, as well as investigate renovation options to improve fan comfort and provide a greater variety of amenities to support the evolving needs of the student-athletes, fans and campus community.
