buck,” Loos said of partner-ing with the University. “Thedeveloper has offered financingfor less for everybody, includ-ing the city.”According to a press releaseissued by KU Athletics, the track and field stadium will be able toseat up to 10,000 people, thesoftball stadium 1,500 and thesoccer stadium 2,500. The totalcost will be $39 million, spreadout over 30 years instead of anestimated $50 million, thanksto the partnership with the KUEndowment Association andThomas and Dru Fritzel of BlissSports.“By partnering and comingtogether, we can build in one loca-tion and save some on that infra-structure cost,” Shaw said. “We’rebeing able to share resourceswithout duplicating in separatelocations.”Loos thinks the project willbenefit the University as well asthe entire city by drawing in tour-ists for KU events and youth ath-letic tournaments, and in turn,more revenue from retail.“We’re continuing to devel-op a better relationship betweenKU and the city,” Loos said. “It’sreally been driven not only froma growth standpoint but also aneconomic standpoint, and bring-ing more into the city.”Although the two projects areseparate, Kansas athletic direc-tor Sheahon Zenger shares Loos’sbelief in the joint effort bringingprosperity to Lawrence.“If all the facilities are togeth-er, it will be a more vibrant park and it will be more of an econom-ic engine for Lawrence,” Zengersaid.Zenger’s intention in buildingthe park is to bring the track andfield, soccer and softball facilitiesup to par not only with those inthe Big 12, but with universitiesnationwide.“Now more than ever, youhave to stay at a certain level, not just with the competitiveness of your teams, but your facilities,”he said.By increasing the prestige of the arenas and changing the gameday atmosphere, having state-of-the-art facilities will also aid incompeting for recruits. Women’ssoccer coach Mark Francis saidthe impact the new stadium willhave on recruiting would mostlikely be the biggest difference.“It’s going to be like nightand day. It will put us on an evenplaying field with the rest of theconference from a facilities stand-point,” he said.Francis said every athleticdirector in his 14 years of coach-ing at the University has told himthat soccer would receive a new facility.“I’m grateful to them thatthey’ve made it happen and it’s areality now,” Francis said. “That’s very reassuring and I’m apprecia-tive.”
