Pasadena's iconic stadium is set to get a massive makeover, according to abc7, with a $152 million price tag.

The stadium, opened in 1922, is one of the oldest venues for football in the nation. Some beloved aspects of the facility won't be touched, like the neon sign, however, there are plenty of changes that will take place inside.

"The number of luxury seats will be increased to 2,500 from 550," explains CBS. "The site of the annual Rose Bowl game also will get a new scoreboard, safety improvements, more restrooms and more concession stands."
