ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. — The University of New Mexico has selected FieldTurf as its new synthetic playing surface at University Stadium.
Pending approval from the state Board of Finance, athletic director Paul Krebs said on Friday, the turf will be installed in time for this season’s Sept. 1 football opener against Southern University.
The university will appear before the Board of Finance sometime late this week, Krebs said.
Season opener: Southern at New Mexico, University Stadium, time and TV TBA
Tim Cass, UNM’s senior associate athletic director, said an Albuquerque firm, Westwind Landscape Construction, Inc., actually submitted the winning bid for installation and is subcontracting with FieldTurf.
