Logo added to Tucker Stadium field

Tennessee Tech opponents will have no confusion whose field they’re on when they visit Tennessee Tech’s Tucker Stadium this fall. A large, colorful logo at midfield will tell them it’s the home turf of the Golden Eagles.

The large, new Tech logo was added recently to the new 24/7 turf system being installed by The Motz Group as construction is moving steadily toward completion.

Coupled with logos in the end zones and Ohio Valley Conference marks on both sides of the field, Tech’s football stadium will be among the best looking in the nation, according to Director of Athletics Mark Wilson.

“Construction is going very well, and with every new step we’re seeing our plan come together with a really nice look,” Wilson said. “The Motz Group is doing a very nice job, and I think our student-athletes will really benefit from playing on the new surface.

“The new 24/7 turf is transforming the look of Tucker Stadium, and I think fans at the games, as well as viewers who watch our games on TV, will enjoy seeing the new look,” Wilson said.

The Golden Eagles play their first home game on the new turf on September 6 against Cumberland University, the first of 6 home games in 2007, including 4 Thursday night contests.

For season ticket information call (931) 372-3940 or visit the TTU Athletics Ticket Office in Eblen Center.
