McGuirk Stadium expansion plans
What are the plans for the expansion of McGuirk Stadiu? I heard that there were plans to lower the playing surface and adding an upper deck to expand to 25,000-30,000 capacity? When will that take place?

RE: McGuirk Stadium expansion plans
That was an old, on the cheap, plan and there is a high water table. We've seen very old, 5 years or so, art renderings but there will be no major expansion until we start having sell-outs and need the team to perform. Recruiting is picking up, but have never been up to the 85 scholarship limit and will be 3 years until we get there. Other coaches have tried juco and some turnover. The new coaching staff and AD directive is emphasizing good students and some were let go, so about 58 scholarship players last year.

We are recruiting strong students and FBS players with the new staff and there is fruit.

Back to stadium improvements.
There is a link on this UMass forum

The IPF is complete, the new bathrooms, ADA access, video boards, clocks and sound system, and the south end zone terrace, Commonwealth club are all in use in 2019. There are concession changes are being pushed off because of COVID-19
