The Lindenwood – Belleville football stadium renovations are moving along as scheduled. The 2.3 million dollar renovation project, which broke ground in March, is nearing the final stages of completion – and the long-awaited maroon and gray striped EnviroTurf is in place
On Thursday, June 21st the unique turf was installed as the stadium transformed from a construction site to an NAIA football facility. The striped turf has been grabbing the attention of local and national media, including a No. 1 spot on Yahoo's trending news stories. LU - Belleville is one of only four universities in the country to install a non-traditional green field, and the only NAIA school to do so. Boise State and Eastern Washington went with a solid-colored representation of its school colors, while Central Arkansas is currently the only other university with an alternating striped field.
The end zone and sideline bleachers are currently being constructed and concrete has been poured surrounding the outer portion of the stadium. The scoreboard, to be delivered in the next few weeks, will be the finishing touch on Lindenwood Stadium.
Lindenwood – Belleville is less than two months away from the first game in Lynx Football history, and the team is anxious to take the field on September 1st in its inaugural game against Avila University.
