STARKVILLE, Miss. (WTVA) - The home of the Mississippi State University basketball teams will soon get a makeover.

The State College Board approved a 50 million dollar budget to renovate the Humphrey Coliseum.

The Mississippi State University Architect and Director of Designing and Planning, Tim Muzzi, said fans will see some cosmetic changes like premium seating and a club level on the concourse.

Workers will also expand the concourses by adding restrooms, concession stands and redoing the teams' dressing rooms.

Muzzi said the project will be split up into 4 phases.

Designing, planning and construction for the project will take about 3 to 4 years to complete.

Muzzi said work on the renovations could start as early as this fall.

The $50 million came from the schools athletic department.
