COLUMBUS, Ohio - This month, Ohio Stadium underwent installation of a new FieldTurf playing surface.
Four New Fields
Location: Ohio Stadium, Woody Hayes Athletic Center and adjacent to Jesse Owens Memorial Stadium
- Three turf fields - Ohio Stadium, the Woody Hayes Athletic Center indoor field and one outdoor field at the WHAC - will receive new FieldTurf surfaces this spring and summer.
- The Ohio Stadium field was installed in 2007 but the athletic department will save approximately $400,000 by replacing this field now while the other two fields are being done.
- The FieldTurf company will use its advanced recycling technology to reuse the rubber infill and use it as part of the new fields, while the old turf rolls on these fields will also be recycled into other products.
