    Members of Connecticut celebrate after defeating Syracuse in the championship game at the women's Final Four in the NCAA college basketball tournament Tuesday, April 5, 2016, in Indianapolis. Connecticut won 82-51.

    The athletic director for the University of Connecticut said the school will not be adding a surcharge to tickets for the upcoming football and basketball seasons. 

    The school's Board of Trustees in January approved adding between $1 and $5 to tickets for football and men's and women's basketball games. 

    However, Athletic Director David Benedict said he's opposed to springing any price increases on UConn season ticket holders. 

    He said a surcharge is still on the table, but he wants to give people at least six months' notice before it is enacted. 

    The school is trying to raise an estimated $46 million to build new soccer, baseball and softball stadiums. The school says the UConn Foundation expects it can only raise about $25 million toward that goal.
