Thread: New Arena?? (Convocation Center)

  1. #1

    Default New Arena?? (Convocation Center)

    Looks like the BOR has submitted a funding request for GS to get a $36.7MM Convocation Center. Those typically are basketball arenas or multi-use arenas.

    Didn't think State would get state money for a new arena and we wouldn't.

    I just hope we go up to at least 6k seats, hopefully 7k.

    This is....tremendous news! Is $37M enough to build a new arena, or would the school have to match some funds to get what we would like?

    And I need to see if the Hanner expansion project is back on track or not...

    With the cash crunch that this pandemic has brought on, I think this list of budget items has as much chance of sliding through unscathed as the MAC has of playing football this fall.

    your too caught up in the dread of the Covid19. We are finally getting a state of the art basketball arena/multi option building. Something GS can be proud of.

    Not sure but State's budget is $85M. Not sure if that was the final cost, because I remember them downsizing it by 1K.

    Yea I was hoping we were pursuing that with everything we had.

    Didn't make sense for them to get a state funded arena and us sitting here hanging in the wind.

    I'm guessing the work for this has been ongoing for a while, good to see that the change in AD leadership hasn't caused this to be deprioritized or delayed. I hope this isn't shelved due to the budget cuts.
