WSU Regents Approve New Football Center


Washington State University has approved the funding of a new football operations building next to Martin Stadium. The school issued a release today, a portion of which is below.


"Citing the importance of the health and safety of student athletes and the ability to be competitive in the Pac 12, the Washington State University Board of Regents today approved construction of a new football operations building adjacent to Martin Stadium on the Pullman campus.


The $61 million structure will be funded with a combination of money saved in the remodeling of the south side of the stadium last year and $46 million in general revenue bonds. Payments on the bond issue will be covered entirely with funds from WSU’s involvement in the Pac 12 Conference, specifically revenue from the media contract and the new Pac 12 Television Network."
