Construction started on new multipurpose turf field at Penn State Harrisburg

MIDDLETOWN, Pa. – Penn State Harrisburg is set to add to its athletic facilities with the construction of a new multipurpose turf field adjacent to the Education Activities Building, with the project set for completion in the spring.

The facility will serve as the new home of Penn State Harrisburg men’s and women’s soccer and will provide additional practice space for other sport programs at the college.

“We couldn't be more excited about this new addition to our campus,” said Penn State Harrisburg Director of Athletics Rahsaan Carlton. “This multipurpose field will greatly enhance the overall experience of our students who participate in varsity, intramural and club sport programs. It will also provide us the opportunity to explore a wide array of programming options in the future.”

The project includes the installation of turf, fencing, netting, official field lines for multiple sports, new field lighting, and the construction of a 16 by 16 foot video scoreboard.
