The Tuskegee football stadium got a makeover.
The school on Monday posted a tweet unveiling new field turf recently installed at Abbott Memorial Stadium just in time for the Golden Tigers homecoming game on Nov. 5 against Miles.
Tuskegee had been playing home games at the Cramton Bowl in Montgomery as work is being done at Abbott Memorial.
The turf project is just the beginning of a series of planned upgrades to various Tuskegee athletic facilities that have either been completed or will soon be started, the school said.
The projects include:
- New scoreboard at Tuskegee Softball Field (completed)
- Resurface courts and replace wind screens at Pepsico Tennis Courts (completed)
- Daniel “Chappie” James Arena locker rooms
- New football facility, including locker rooms, located outside end zone opposite Logan Hall
- Athletic training facility and meeting rooms
- New football scoreboard.
“I want everyone to make arrangements and plans to be here in November 2022,” said athletic director and head football coach Reginald Ruffin in a promotion video.
