Finley Stadium is well on its way to operating in the black for an eighth consecutive year.
With several weeks remaining in the 2017-18 fiscal year, Finley Stadium executive director Chris Thomas said Tuesday that the 21-year-old facility has a surplus of $124,391.27 through April. He added that the stadium had amassed $1,265,291.45 in revenue and incurred $1,140,900.18 in expenses.
"The bottom line for the year is tracking well," Thomas said. "Everything this year has been controlled, and we're on a steady pattern moving forward."
This year's operating success follows aa $181,372.54 surplus during the 2016-17 fiscal year and a roughly $192,000 surplus in 2015-16.
Thomas had projected $1,626,300 in revenue and $1,593,300 in expenses in the current fiscal year, resulting in a surplus of $33,000. Concession revenue was off this year compared to 2016-17, but revenue from permit parking and the rental of the First Tennessee Pavilion more than doubled.
