The renovation of Sun Devil Stadium has begun. The first thing on the to-do list was to tear down sections of the upper deck seating area above the north end zone. Here is a look at the progress so far as told through tweets from the media and people in and around the stadium.
The sections that are currently being removed are sections 220-228. It will reduce the capacity of the stadium to 66,000.There are 348 season ticket holders in these sections that the ASU athletics program has promised to move to new locations at a discounted price for next season.
