BETHLEHEM, Pa. --- Moravian College will be installing a new turf surface on Rocco Calvo Field at the Steel Athletic Complex during the summer of 2018.
The initial Sportexe turf surface was installed during the summer of 2005 and has hosted the football team, men's lacrosse squad, women's lacrosse team and field hockey squad for varsity events over the past 13 years.
Work to remove the old turf surface began on June 21, and the installation of the new Shaw Sports Turf is expected to begin by mid-July with the project set to finish by August 1. RD Weis designed the look of the new Shaw surface.
Moravian's football team is slated to return to campus on Friday, August 10 with the first practice on the new turf on August 11 and the home opener versus King's College set for Saturday, September 1 with kickoff at 1:00 p.m.
