The University of Arizona in Tucson, Ariz., announced the athletic department finished installing new field turf at Arizona Stadium. Arizona Athletics partnered with Lloyd Sports Engineers and KappCon during the $1.3 million-dollar investment in the new Field Turf Vortex Core with Purefill for cooling purposes.

“As we’ve done with all of our enhancements over the years, we continually look to improve our athletic venues with new technology to ensure our student-athletes have a first-class experience,” Dave Heeke, vice president and director of athletics for the University of Arizona, said. “The long-term vision of our football facility is a critical piece to the future of our entire athletics department.”

The work was performed by KappCon and Lloyd Sports Engineers over three months, from May to July 2022. The finishing touches included changes to the logos in the end zones, a “Bear Down” wordmark in white on all four corners of the field and the removal of the ghosted “Bear Down” wordmark down the center of the field, which was replaced with the university’s Block A logo.
