Vanier Football Complex
and North Stadium Enhancements
Capturing the Momentum
Kansas State University's Bill Snyder Family Stadium is in the midst of a transformation.
As evidenced by the completion of nearly $125 Million in Athletic Facility upgrades benefiting all 16 sports in recent months, including multiple seasons of consecutive home sellouts at Bill Snyder Family Stadium, K-Staters from across the nation have spoken again.
Now is the time to capitalize on our momentum and complete the next critical Phase III of the Bill Snyder Family Stadium Master Plan.
With a new Vanier Football Complex, the Wildcats will more than double the amount of space for student-athletes and coaches, providing access to world-class resources, equipment and facilities and creating a more cohesive and efficient experience to train, study and compete.
The new training complex, attached to the stadium, will include expansive spaces, bold graphics and state-of-the-art equipment. A grand 4-story atrium will leave a memorable first impression and be accessible from all levels, including the main concourse.
Perhaps most importantly, a new Academic Learning Center will facilitate the very best in academic support services for K-State student-athletes from all 16 sports.
A massive new Strength & Conditioning Center will more than double the current footprint with multi-level height ceilings, natural lighting and a built-in plyometric ramp. All-new sports medicine and hydrotherapy equipment will include the latest in student-athlete training and recovery resources.
A new team theater will be added, along with a customized and centrally located locker room, multiple student-athlete lounge spaces and expansive meeting rooms. The entire top floor will be dedicated to the football program, including offices and meeting rooms, with a private balcony outside of the coaches' offices displaying incredible views of the field and stadium.
The north stadium expansion will result in a much-improved game day experience for the grass-roots fan base and a more intimidating atmosphere within the fully-enclosed seating bowl. Enhanced sightlines, deep seating treads and direct stadium access will be among many welcomed improvements to K-State fans.
The completion of Phase III of the Bill Snyder Family Stadium Master Plan will further solidify the university's place as a prominent force in the Big 12, and aid in attracting, retaining & training high quality recruits from across the nation.
