The $110 million renovation plan for Commonwealth Stadium was revealed Monday afternoon.

Seating will decrease from 67,000 to 61,000, but plenty of other upgrades will be added.

A new exterior will give the stadium a new look on the outside.

Inside, the concourses will be widened and the bathrooms will be completely rebuilt.

Larger concession stands will give more food choices.

Alcohol will be sold in the club level and inside new suites.

The stadium lights will be replaced, some of which will sit on a new 2-level press box.

Some work will begin on the stadium shortly after the Tennessee game this year with the entire project expected to be completed by the home opener in 2015.
