MANHATTAN, Kansas – Bill Snyder Family Stadium has been standing since 1968 and bearing the name of their leader since 2005.
When K-State takes the field tomorrow against the North Dakota State Bison, they’ll be doing so in a highly upgraded stadium
The $90 million West Stadium Center expansion began last December when they demolished the original structure and began constructing the new 213,000 square foot facility.
The new part to the stadium includes multiple concourse levels, a hall of fame, ring of honor, state of the art suites and even a new press box.
KSU Athletic Director John Currie says the expansion to the stadium should send a positive message to the players, students and fans about the direction the school is headed in.
“It’s another statement that Kansas State is going to be a part of the highest echelon of intercollegiate athletics, it’s a statement that we do things in a first class manner,” said Currie.
Currie says the West Stadium Center will also serve as the northwest gateway to the campus.
