When Salisbury University athletics teams take to the stadium field this year, they will be walking on 35,500 pounds of new turf fiber, 408,000 pounds of sand and 360,000 pounds of rubber.

On Friday, September 2, SU President Janet Dudley-Eshbach joined Sea Gull fans to cut the ribbon on new stadium turf before the first home football game of the season. “I am pleased that we are finally able to give our athletes and coaches the facilities they deserve,” she said. “We opened the new stadium this past spring. With the new turf and video scoreboard, we’re completing the job.” 

The large video board is illuminated with over 300,000 LEDs. Other improvements unveiled include Sammy the Sea Gull murals to brighten stadium interiors and nearly 500 fixed stadium seats that provide a vibrant maroon and gold signature. Little was wasted: the aluminum bleachers that were removed will become stands for SU’s softball field, and almost all of the old turf was recycled or repurposed, including into a dog run.

“Sea Gull Stadium is one of the best facilities in all of Division III athletics, and the completion of the final improvements distinguish it even further,” said Dr. Gerry DiBartolo, interim athletics director.
