UNI Giving Away Old Turf

Posted:

The UNI Athletic Department has announced additional details regarding the UNI-Dome Turf Giveaway on Saturday, Sept. 19. For the Panthers' football game against Saint Francis (Pa.), the first 12,000 fans with a game ticket will receive a one-square foot piece of the old UNI-Dome Astroturf.

Beginning at 11 a.m. Saturday, individuals with game tickets can report to the east or west UNI-Dome entrances with their game ticket to receive their free piece of UNI-Dome history. The giveaway is still limited to the first 12,000 fans with game tickets arriving at a UNI-Dome entrance.

Doors to the UNI-Dome will open 90 minutes before game time, with kickoff scheduled for 4:05 p.m.

The playing surface in the UNI-Dome was renovated over the summer of 2009, with the old Astroturf being replaced by MondoTurf with Ecofill Star.
