LOOK: Neyland Stadium Interior Renovation Progressing Along

Just minutes after the final home game during the Vols’ 2021-2022 season, construction workers began the off-season stadium renovations to Neyland Stadium.

On Tuesday, after long months of hard work, a video showing an update of the Neyland Stadium found its way to Twitter. The video was originally posted to Instagram by Jake Cottrell and then was reposted to Twitter through Vol Report.

The biggest notable change right off the bat is the new jumbotron that has been installed in the middle of the upper deck section above the north endzone. Previously capped at 102,455, the jumbotron addition has taken away 540 seats from the stadium, leaving the new stadium capacity at 101,915.

As the video continues to pan from left to right, viewers can see more and more of the field, highlighting the changes that will be happening on the west side of the stadium. Tennessee is adding several rows of luxury chairback seating directly behind the Vols’ bench.

The video finishes up by panning to the south side of the stadium showing off the new V-O-L-S letter additions on each side of the traditional jumbotron. Tennessee removed the letters prior to the 1999 season, but after Tennessee fans made a lot of noise about its return, UT Athletic Director Danny White gave the fans what they wanted and more.

Tennessee will open up the season inside of Neyland Stadium on Thursday, Sept. 1, 2022. The Vols will host Ball State in the season-opener.

  1. If your not growing, your dying. Thank you to the leadership of Mrs. Plowman and Mr. White and all others involved. I have been waiting for this paradigm shift in Vol leadership for over a decade.
