Bobcat Stadium to Add Turf in 2006
Frostburg State’s Bobcat Stadium will see the addition of Sprinturf on its playing field this spring.
Sprinturf is the leading American-owned installer and manufacturer of synthetic turf systems. Sprinturf revolutionized the industry by patenting and installing the first non-abrasive, non-compacting, all-rubber infill system.
Five FSU sports will directly benefit from the newly renovated field; including football, men’s and women’s soccer, track & field as well as women’s lacrosse. Intramurals will also have a chance to host their activities on the new field.
Funding for this project will come directly from designated student athletic fees.
Installation of the new turf is set to begin on Thursday, March 16 and last for approximately six weeks.
The addition of Sprinturf is the second renovation to Bobcat Stadium since last year. In September of 2005, the Stadium, which was built in 1974, saw the addition of 95 stadium lights.
