·1 min read

Neyland Stadium's capacity will decrease to 101,915 for the 2022 season after renovations are completed.

The previous capacity was 102,455 for Tennessee football's stadium.

The stadium is undergoing renovations to the lower west level and the north end zone.

UT is creating a premium experience on the lower west side of Neyland Stadium behind the Tennessee bench. It also is adding a north end zone video board and creating a standing room only area under the video board. The lower west side club and the north end zone project are revenue-generating projects expected to help fund part of the remaining upgrades.

Neyland Stadium has had a capacity of more than 100,000 since 1995. The record attendance is 109,061, set on Sept. 18, 2004, against Florida.

The renovations are part of ongoing changes to Neyland Stadium. The initial approval was in November 2017 and changes have continued to be made, including Thursday.
