Lincoln-It will be a busy agenda for the Nebraska Regents at their next meeting on Sept 30th. The Regents will vote to approve a 15 year multi-media rights agreement with Playfly Sports Properties LLC. Nebraska athletics has recommended approving the deal which would run through June 30th of 2038.

The deal is valued at over 300 million dollars. Since 20021 Nebraska athletics has taken care of running its own media rights program including its own radio network. If approved by the Regents operations would be transitioned over a 9 month period and Playfly would look to take over on June 30th of 2023.

The board will also vote to approve the sale of alcohol at NU sporting events at Pinnacle Bank Arena and at Haymarket Park.
