MANHATTAN, Kan. (AP) Kansas State is planning a $75 million expansion project at its football stadium.
Athletic director John Currie said Thursday that the six-phase project on the west side of the stadium will replace the press box and add concession areas, restrooms, luxury seating and an expanded ticket office.
Currie announced the plans during a pep rally in Arlington, Texas, as the Wildcats prepare for Friday’s Cotton Bowl game against Arkansas. The project is the most ambitious athletics facility upgrade in the school’s history.
Currie says Kansas State has raised roughly one-third of the money needed to start the project. The goal is to start construction before the 2012 season.
