ATHLETICS MASTER VILLAGE

Boise State unveiled its vision for an Athletics Master Village after a complete venue assessment by AECOM's sports practice - the industry's only fully-integrated sports consultancy. The vision incorporates AECOM's recommendations for facility improvements and additions and will position the department for future successes within each of its 18 sports programs.

"This assessment, in totality, will impact each of our 18 sports programs while significantly enhancing the experience for our loyal fans and stakeholders. With the help of Bronco Nation, now is the time to position our department for sustainable excellence and assure we are providing an elite student-athlete experience.”

     -Jeramiah Dickey, Director of Athletics

The Athletics Master Village, part of the newly-released Boise State Athletics Playbook for Success, focuses on 12 priorities Boise State deems critical when positioning itself for future success and sustainability.
