UMD Announcement at 2:30 pm Tomorrow

Chevy Chase Bank is putting up $20 million for the naming rights mentioned earlier today and will hold them for 25 years. Some details are still being worked out, but additional renovations to Byrd will include an expanded visitor locker room, expanded and renovated Varsity Team House (for the other Varsity Athletic teams), and a bubble for practice during inclement weather.

Construction is to take place in two phases and will start after the upcoming 2006 football season. Unlike the last Byrd expansion, this will not have any effect on the football season either this year or next.

More details tomorrow at the Presser.
