According to 247sports.com, Michigan State is going to delay its scheduled upgrades to Munn Ice Arena, citing financial issues caused by the COVID-19 pandemic.

MSU is estimating a loss of approximately $300 million for the upcoming fiscal year, but “the budget situation continues to change,” said school president Samuel Stanley.

Munn’s “addition 3” project, with a budget estimate of more than $23 million, has been deferred in the construction phase.

Among the projects deferred in the design stage are technology and display upgrades to Munn’s Hall of History, which has a cost of $2-2.5 million.
