Vanderbilt to spend $300 million to upgrade football, hoops
NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — Vanderbilt has announced a $300 million project to improve football and basketball facilities and a new Vandy United Fund to raise money for athletics programs.
The Vandy United Fund already has $200 million to start work on the projects, with $100 million from the university and another $100 million from donors. Chancellor Daniel Diermeier says the Vandy United Fund is the largest undertaking of its kind in Vanderbilt’s athletics history.
He says it’s a bold step and the beginning of a longer journey. Vanderbilt will start upgrading football and basketball offices, weight rooms, practice courts and locker rooms once this football season ends.
