Horejsi Family Volleyball Arena

Kansas volleyball and the athletic department unveiled the new Horejsi Family Volleyball Arena Tuesday, Sept. 10, 2019 to donors, staff and others in attendance.

“It was really exciting to see the look on people’s faces as they walked into this beautiful new arena,” said head coach Ray Bechard. “Many people had wide-eye looks and big smiles when they walked into the new arena for the first time.”

The arena provides the Jayhawks with a state-of-the-art facility that was made possible by the facilities namesake, Stew Horejsi.

Horejsi was the original benefactor of the Horejsi Family Athletics Center (HFCA) and further demonstrated his love and passion for Kansas volleyball and athletics with another donation that helped ensure that the Jayhawks had one of the best facilities in the country.

The new arena, which was built in eight months, replaced the HFAC, which was the 20-year home of Kansas volleyball.
