Statements from our athletics department
The transformational changes to David Booth Kansas Memorial Stadium, the Anderson Family Football Complex and surrounding areas will directly impact the Football Program, all student-athletes and the greater campus community, along with the city of Lawrence, Douglas County and the entire state of Kansas.
This project is vital to the continued growth of our program. We are incredibly appreciative of the commitment shown by our generous donors, Chancellor Girod, Travis Goff and many others. The substantial upgrades to David Booth Kansas Memorial Stadium and Anderson Family Football Complex will greatly enhance the student-athlete experience. I am very much looking forward to seeing that come to life.
