ASU Athletics: Looking at department financial statements

New, 4 comments

What does the money look like when broken down?

Mark J. Rebilas-USA TODAY Sports

ASU reported the financials of its athletics department for the 2013-14 fiscal year which began on June 30, 2013 and ended on July 1, 2014. Although we're well into 2015 now, I recently ran across these statements on the U.S. Department of Education website through the office of postsecondary education and thought they were interesting to look at.

You can dive further into the information here on the DOE website, but I've gathered the screen shots below.

Football to nobody's surprise has the highest operating expenses of any team. Beach volleyball comes in last at $10,698, a difference of $6,488,239 between the two sports.

Another interesting note here: The difference in men's and women's total team expenses totals $ 26,627,716. However, if you take football out of the equation, the spending is almost exactly even. In fact, if you take football out, ASU spent $496,483 more on women's sports than men's sports. Remember this number will continue to increase when the Sun Devils add hockey and another women's sport to the fold.

If you subtract the grand total revenues by the grand total expenses, you see ASU operated in the black for the 2013-14 year, bringing in a total of $176,164.

This chart just further breaks down what is already in the first three charts. Some numbers to take note of including student aid and recruiting expenses.
