Wichita State releases study on feasibility of adding football
Football remains expensive and the report details start-up facility costs of more than $40 million and football budgets that start around $6 million annually.
As Boatright said recently, the release of the report is not considered a “confetti cannons” moment. The purpose of the report is not to make recommendations. It provides Wichita State with information regarding the steps necessary to start a football program, both at the lower-level Championship Subdivision and highest-level Bowl Subdivision, including cost, manpower, facilities and gender-equity compliance.
