LAS CRUCES, N.M. – New Mexico State Athletics announced on Friday afternoon that the web cam at Aggie Memorial Stadium now allows all fans to watch the installation of the synthetic turf. Thanks to the NM State ICT Department, fans can look in on the progress. Click Here to view or click the ad on the front page of NMStateSports.com.
A $1 million donation from businessman Stan Fulton will help New Mexico State University fund installation of a new, synthetic turf at Aggie Memorial Stadium. The new turf is expected to improve player development, help with player recruitment and increase community accessibility to the stadium.
For years, access to the field at Aggie Memorial stadium has been restricted to prevent damaging the natural grass. This would not be a concern with synthetic turf. With the new turf, additional high school and other football games could be played at Aggie Memorial Stadium. The stadium could also play host to additional band and cheerleading camps and serve as a venue for NMSU Greek, intramural and ROTC activities.
