MANHATTAN, Kan. (AP) — The press box at Bill Snyder Family Stadium will be destroyed next week as part of a stadium expansion project.

The implosion of the Dev Nelson Press Box is scheduled for Dec. 15. The structure on the west side of the stadium features 22 luxury suites and a media center. It opened in 1993.

The implosion is part of a $75 million project called the West Stadium Center. The new structure will include a new press box, a ticket office, a Hall of Honor, 40 private suites, 36 club boxes and 800 club-level seats.

Construction on the north and south portions has been ongoing through the fall. The destruction of the press box will pave the way for the rest of the center to be erected.
