This is my annual update of the Virginia Tech Athletics financial information for the year ended June 30, 2013 (FY 2013). As noted in past reports, the following standard caveats and comments are made:

As in past years, there is generally inconsistent reporting in the government information when compared to the reports on the APA website. I believe the primary difference between the government information and the APA info is related to the reporting of debt service which is generally not included in the government information.
For this report I have presented the past three years for both Virginia Tech and U. Va. In the first presentation the Virginia Tech numbers are presented for the past 3 years, and the changes between the 2013 and 2012 years are also reported.
