Fairfield Prepatory HS gets new multi-sports turf field

BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (WBRC) - Tiger Stadium at Fairfield Preparatory High School has a new look for the 2019 football season. School and community leaders held a ribbon cutting for a brand new $800,000 multi-sports turf field.

“This is going to give our students more opportunities to shine,” said Fairfield Preparatory Principal Terrell Davis. “This is not just a football field, but will be a home to soccer and in the future maybe Lacrosse, and of course a place for our band to practice.”

School officials say it is an investment not just for the kids, but in money as coaches will not have to re-sod the field each year along with re-painting the field for each home game.

The Tigers will play its first game on the new turf field in football on Aug. 30 against Carver.
