The University of Akron (UA) installed a new AstroTurf field at InfoCision Stadium-Summa Field, the home turf for Akron Zips Football.

The University of Akron chose the Rhino Blend 48 turf system for InfoCision Stadium-Summa Field. It has a multi-ply backing system for dimensional stability and a supportive secondary backing system that comes with optional soy-based BioCel technology.

“We’re delighted to partner with AstroTurf on our new turf installation at InfoCision Stadium at Summa Field,” Charles Guthrie, director of intercollegiate athletics at UA, said. “This new turf field illustrates a continued commitment by our key supporters to our athletics program. The new Rhino Blend system by AstroTurf will enhance the athletic experience for our students and ensure we continue to sustain our top-tier athletic facilities.”

The new football field will also be one of the first playing surfaces at UA to feature the school’s revamped logo: a stylized “A,” which was introduced in May of this year. UA’s new logo is at the mid-field of the new football field.
