JD gets the details of what we’re paying to play at TSU this year. Also had a quote in there from CKS saying he’s the one that nixed any games at the Toyota Center.
McClelland said the cost UH is paying to rent H&PE Arena “is nowhere near what they would have paid at Toyota Center or anywhere else.”
As part of the agreement, UH is paying a rental fee of $3,375 per game, which comes out to $50,625 for the season. The deal also includes a $350,000 payout to TSU, a FCS school, to play a non-conference football game Sept. 29 at TDECU Stadium.
“We got the (rental fee) down to the bare bones as we possibly could because of the relationship,” McClelland said. “We reduced a lot of the costs.”
