The University of Hawaii Board of Regents has approved a plan that would allow the UH athletics booster organizations to include concerts and non-UH athletic events at the Stan Sheriff Center to produce additional revenue for the struggling athletic department. Under plans approved by the UH Board of Regents last week, Ahahui Koa Anuenue, an umbrella organization for all athletic booster clubs, will be asked to generate revenue through what officials term "additional activities." Those activities include concerts or other entertainment-type events, like Broadway shows, comedy shows or Cirque du Soleil. The non-UH athletic events would include arena football, NBA exhibition, international tournaments and professional tennis events. The athletic department is currently $2 million in debt.
