Baylor advances toward a new stadium
By ESPN.com staff
Baylor announced its plans for a new stadium last weekend, and now, the process to make it a reality is underway.
The school unveiled its survey for fans to offer input on the possibility of the new stadium as part of its research before possibly beginning earnest steps toward building the new proposed venue.
From Baylor athletic director Ian McCaw:
Baylor has retained Plano-based Convention Sports & Leisure International to conduct a market and feasibility study to obtain your feedback, assess potential new seating plans and benchmark our stadium operations. With this information we are exploring opportunities to not only enhance our football game- day experience, but also generate additional resources to fund an on-campus stadium while positioning Baylor Athletics for continued competitive Big 12 Conference and national excellence.
Survey topics will include questions not only about our current football home, Floyd Casey Stadium, but premium seating, pricing and amenities that may be part of a new on-campus stadium.
We'd value your insight and opinions at this critical juncture as we assess Floyd Casey Stadium's future as well as the interest of Bear Nation to support a new on-campus football stadium.
Interesting stuff. This process will be fascinating to watch, and it's just now getting heated up.
