University of Michigan athletic director Warde Manuel announced Tuesday the projected costs of the football team’s week-long visit to Rome, Italy in April.
According to Angelique Chengelis of the Detroit News, Manual said the total would be between $750,000 and $800,000. As previously reported, the entire cost was being covered by a university donor who wishes to remain anonymous.
Manuel said that the school is still “waiting on a few numbers,” but that the total is expected to be in that range, adding that the cost was around $5,000 to $6,000 per person.
