Knowing where the game is headed is an important part of college athletics.

To gain insight to the challenges of athletic directors, AECOM teamed with Ohio University Center for Sports Administration, the nation’s top-ranked graduate sports administration program, to study trends in facilities investment and providing fans and student-athletes with the best experience.

Following an initial survey of athletic directors in 2014, we conducted a follow-up in November 2015 that looks ahead to 2021. The survey measures:

  • Plans for investment
  • Priorities for attracting recruits
  • Fan amenity preferences
  • Who is influencing the design decisions
