Evergreen Turf installs new carpet of Arizona sod at UofA soccer stadium
The 2010 FIFA World Cup culminates this weekend in South Africa. And as the World’s premier soccer stars lace up their boots for their final 90 minute battle, Evergreen Turf has set the stage for some great soccer matches to take place right here in Arizona.
Evergreen Turf, Arizona’s premier sod producer, recently installed a new turf field at the University of Arizona’s Mulcahy Stadium practice field. See the slideshow here.
In 1996, the University of Arizona Wildcats first acquired an official home field. They have since built a faithful fan base that regularly shows up to the stadium for home games.
Murphey Field at Mulcahy Stadium is located at the corner of Plumer Avenue and 15th Street, adjacent to Drachman Track in Tucson. In the off-season, the field is shared with the Department of Campus Recreation for intramural and other student activities, but once preseason practice begins in the fall, fencing is installed in order to keep the field in top shape for the start of the official season.
Evergreen Turf performed the recent grading and sodding of the newly surfaced field. Learn more about other sports complex sod installations by Evergreen Turf here.
About Mulcahy Stadium
Mulcahy Stadium is one of the premier soccer facilities in Arizona. The installation of lights for night play was made possible by the generous assistance of Tucson’s Murphey Foundation. A field house for soccer and track was completed in August 2007, and includes a concession area, changing area, training area, ticket office, official’s area, permanent public restrooms, and new signage.
