New playing surface expected to be completed in July

Colorado State football released the design for the team’s new playing surface at Canvas Stadium on Monday. The new playing surface will feature a Canvas Stadium logo as well as the other markings from the original design.

It was originally announced in March that the turf and materials that form its drainage would be replaced to meet the required percolation performance specifications. The project will have no financial impact on the Department of Athletics or the university - according to CSU - the work is covered as part of the original construction specification requirements.

Work began this week, and the project is expected to be completed by mid-July.
