Good Morning K-State Nation!
After an on-time early morning
flight on American Airlines from MHK to DFW, I am gearing up for a full
day of Big 12 meetings after which I'll hop back to Manhattan on the
evening AA DFW-MHK "shuttle" flight.
Before I head down to the
meeting room, I am pleased to share some exciting news in regards to our
2015 Purple/White Spring Football Game.
Thanks to the great
efforts of our construction partners Mortenson/GE Johnson, construction
of the new Vanier Football Complex is proceeding on schedule to open our
incredible new facility in August. As you can imagine given the pace
of the project and heavy activity on and around the site, attempting to
hold the annual spring game in Bill Snyder Family Stadium would present
significant logistical and safety issues for both our team and fans.
Thus, we are thrilled to announce that the 2015 game will be played at 3
p.m., Saturday, April 25, at Sporting Park, in Kansas City, Kansas, the
award-winning facility and home of the 2013 Major League Soccer
Champions, Sporting KC!
