The University of Washington athletic department ranked third among Pac-12 Conference public schools in revenue in 2013, generating a little more than $85 million, according to a USA Today study of 230 athletic departments’ finances.

UW’s $85,072,886 in total revenue ranked 27th in the nation. That figure represents an increase from $82,594,783 in 2012 revenues — and is nearly double the total revenue of $43,197,964 UW reported from 2005.

Other notable figures:

  • UW reported expenses of $76,209,927 for 2013, an increase of $2,376,284 from 2012.
  • UW reported contributions of $26,598,771 for 2013, an increase of nearly $3 million from 2012.
  • UW reported total ticket sales of $19,895,534, down from $22,682,731 in 2012.
  • UW reported rights/licensing fees of $31,754,727, up from $28,838,597 in 2012.
  • UW reported a subsidy of $3,335,999 for 2013, up from $3,065,500 in 2012.

According to a May 2013 budget overview, UW projects a total operating revenue of about $103 million for 2014-15, with expenses projected at just under $78 million.

Since 2012, Cal leapfrogged UW into second place among Pac-12 public schools in revenue; in 2013, Cal reported total revenues of nearly $95 million, up from $71 million a year earlier.
