Current SNY deal is 5 MBB, 1 FB, and 15 WBB games. Assumes up to 5 additional FB games under a Independent FB arrangement. Range is purely speculative

ESPN+ Event Production CostsN/A $ (1,298,611) N/A

11
NCAA Tourney Credits $ 803,833 $ 643,299 $ 961,859
Old TV deal benefited from old Big East tourney credits pre-2014 split between UConn/Cincy/USF, which ends in 2020; UConn does not get Big East credits from prior to admission to conference (removing half of credit payout to reflect this)
12
Increase MBB/WBB Ticket SalesN/AN/A $ 1,252,344
Based on increase in ticket sales within 48 hours of Big East annoucement, assuming sustainable with increased interest in regional rivalries, high end assumes this continues to go up. Could make this higher but unsupported at this point. Average annual ticket price unknown.
13
Effect on FB Ticket SalesN/AN/ATBD
Depends on schedule developed by AD under an Independent model. Could have one less home game, but also more regional games at the Rent.
14
Increase DonationsN/AN/ATBD
Donations have increased since announcement. Sustainability questions, but also unable to quanitfy.
15
Increase in Buy GamesN/AN/A $ 750,000
Versus major P5 opponents playing at home field with no return that normally would have been an AAC conference game, assuming 1 additional buy with remaining home-and-homes. $1.2 million for Clemson/$1.8 for Tennessee
16
Increase in Sell GamesN/AN/A $ (142,500)
May require 2 FCS opponents on schedule as opposed to traditional 1, typically $285k/game based on recent FCS additions
17
Effect on Sponsorship RevenueN/AN/ATBD
Would expect an increase based on more ticket sales, but unable to quantify
