Bob Cunningham Field Turf Project

Football turf project

Wayne State College has been investing in athletic facilities with the help of the Wayne State Foundation for many years. Recent upgrades such as the baseball and softball complex, Memorial Stadium renovation, football/soccer locker rooms, varsity weight room, Rice Auditorium seating, and the Wildcat Sports Medicine Center play an important role in the success of the athletic department. These investments need to continue to take place because they positively affect the quality of athletics, which in turn benefits the college community, campus life, and student success. Wayne State student athletes excel on and off the field. 

The $1.5-million athletic improvement project included new football ProGrass turf along with new fencing and columns at Bob Cunningham Field. The soccer stadium was expanded to provide a wider playing surface, new fencing, and spectator bleachers. The final phase of the project was to resurface the Dr. LeRoy Simpson Track. The new polyurethane surface replaces the original surface that was installed in 2003.
