When the University of Michigan football season opens on Sept. 4 against Connecticut, Michigan Stadium will once again reclaim the title of the largest stadium in the United States for college and/or professional football. The seating capacity will be 109,901 for 2010 when the historic home of Wolverine football will have the bulk of the renovations completed.
"The stadium structures on the east and west side will be complete and all new premium seats will be on line," said Director of Intercollegiate Athletics Dave Brandon. "We are very excited to have the club seats and suites completed for the upcoming season and we continue to get great reaction from fans who tour those seating areas."
Certain sections will be adjusted for the 2010 season as aisles and seats are widened on the east side of the stadium. Similar modifications inside the seating bowl will be phased in over the next few seasons. Hand rails will also be added in the aisle ways.
"The upper concourses on the east and west sidelines should also make a huge improvement to circulation, and we are happy to add the new restrooms and concessions in those areas," added Brandon.

Sept. 4 Connecticut
Sept. 11 at Notre Dame
Sept. 18 Massachusetts
Sept. 25 Bowling Green
