It’s not hard to figure out why Mississippi State is working on an expansion project at Davis Wade Stadium… the Bulldogs are selling out their season tickets every year. Yesterday, the MSU ticket office sold the last of 43,300 season tickets for the upcoming football season. That’s a tad fewer tickets sold than last year, but only because State will face Alabama and LSU at home this year and both schools requested a few more seats.
This marks the fourth consecutive season of sold out season-tickets in Starkville. According to The Jackson Clarion-Ledger, the Bulldogs have sold out 23 games in a row as they enter the new season. And of the 20 biggest crowds in Mississippi State football history, 19 have come during Dan Mullen’s reign which began in 2009.
The expansion project at MSU is scheduled to be completed next summer and will increase total capacity at Davis Wade Stadium from 55,082 to 61,337. The project will also add more concession stands and it will nearly double the number or restroom fixtures. The project is expected to cost $75 million.
