Morgan Family Arena

The new Volleyball Arena will dramatically change the student-athlete and fan experience at K-State Volleyball matches.

A Modern Home for Wildcat Volleyball - Morgan Family Arena

The two-level, air-conditioned Volleyball Arena will seat approximately 3,100 fans and provide first-class amenities for student-athletes, coaches, fans, and recruits.

The Volleyball Arena will be located directly south of the west parking lot, with the ticket office located on the northeast corner, which will allow easier and quicker access to the new facility. Spacious restrooms and permanent concessions will be located on both the first and second levels and fans will enjoy the experience of videoboards positioned on each end of the court.

This arena will feature two practice courts for efficient training and a game court utilizing the newest in volleyball flooring. In addition, auxiliary locker rooms to accommodate multiple teams for regular season and NCAA tournament matches will be added.

K-State Athletics is proud to recognize Ward and Brenda Morgan of Manhattan, Kansas, for their lead philanthropic gift to support the new K-State volleyball arena that will break ground in early 2022. For the Morgans' commitment to K-State volleyball, the new volleyball arena will be named Morgan Family Arena and will be open in time for the 2023 season.

The volleyball arena will dramatically enhance the student-athlete and fan experience at K-State volleyball matches. The arena will include a seating capacity of approximately 3,100, two practice courts with retractable seating, two video boards, team meeting rooms, locker room, team theater and coaches' offices.

We're to the point where our facility infrastructure is number 1 on my list followed by 1a, 1b, 1c. What I love about it is the multi-use facility plan ... it will have a tremendous impact on a lot of our student-athletes. Moving over to the north side logistically makes a lot more sense for the athletes. Time management is one of the most difficult things about being a great student-athlete and it allows us to help them and manage their time in a better way.
K-State Head Coach Suzie Fritz
Our volleyball program and Suzie Fritz have done a phenomenal job. But we really need to upgrade volleyball. This facility ties in with the rest of our programs so she’s with all our other sports programs in terms of location. It’s going to be a beautiful facility for her from a recruiting and practice perspective; coaches’ offices, training room and team meeting rooms.
