After nearly a century of collecting a fat pay check from TV endorsements and ticket sales for Final Four and championship games, the NCAA has agreed to reimburse the parents of student-athletes who travel to these games to watch their children play moving forward.
For men’s and women’s Final Four teams, the NCAA will pay up to $3,000 total for travel, hotel and meal expenses for student-athletes’ families to attend games. Championship game participants will receive $4,000. The new College Football Playoff may provide up to $3,000 in expenses for families of each competing student-athlete.
Good news for cool dads of college athletes and their families!
