NCAA NARROWS SEARCH FOR NEW HOME TO INDY AND KANSAS CITY
Published April 9, 1997
The NCAA has narrowed its search for a new home to Indianapolis and Kansas City, according to Kathleen Johnston of the INDIANAPOLIS STAR-NEWS. The NCAA eliminated Denver and the Dallas-Ft. Worth area from contention. The STAR- NEWS' Johnston notes Indianapolis' $50M incentive package "might have been the real show-stealer for the NCAA group of college presidents and athletic administrators deciding on the move." Lilly Endowment, the Indianapolis-based philanthropic organization, has said it would provide a $10M grant to the project if the private sector here raises $15M. (INDIANAPOLIS STAR-NEWS, 4/8). A final decision on the site is expected in May or early June (K.C. STAR, 4/9).
