Completed in August 2012, this project was the second phase to the stadium which lowered the football field approximately eight feet from its previous height. Additional seating was added on three sides of the stadium, artificial field turf was installed, and a large grass berm was created on the remaining side for additional lawn seating. Site improvements made to the stadium during this phase helped to create a "horseshoe" stadium.
During the Lakers 2012 football season, Grand Valley State University lead the nation in football attendance for the second consecutive year, averaging 12,034 fans per home game.
