Folsom expansion bumps CU budget

University of Colorado officials project an increase of up to $3.5 million, or 33 percent, in football ticket revenue this year following the completion of a $43.8 million expansion of Folsom Field.

Meeting, banquet bookings expected to grow.
The project added 40 luxury suites and nearly tripled the number of club seats at the stadium. Suites are being leased for $50,000 per year; club seats are being leased for $2,250 per year.

Bookings of the new meeting and banquet facilities at the stadium also are expected to become a significant source of revenue, although no specific line item exists in the school's 2003-04 budget for these rentals. School officials are hoping to attract 50 non-game-day events to the venue this year, up from only a handful in each of the past two years.

CU's 2003-04 athletic department budget is $36.5 million, a record high. That total represents an increase of $6.2 million (also a record), 20 percent over the 2002-03 budget, which university officials attribute largely to the stadium's projected improved revenue streams.
