Board Of Trustees Advance Plan For Penn State Field Hockey Stadium Upgrade

Update, July 22: Penn State’s Board of Trustees approved final plans for improvements to the school’s field hockey complex during its meeting on Friday, July 22.

Original Post: A Penn State Board of Trustees committee advanced a plan Thursday morning to upgrade the school’s field hockey complex at University Park. The full board will vote on the plan during its meeting on Friday, July 22, at the Penn State York campus.

The $12.8-million renovation project will include upgrades to the home and visiting team dressing areas, public restrooms, ticket office, locker room space for officials, and concession areas. Additionally, press and media boxes, a television broadcast booth, a multi-purpose hospitality room, and field storage will be added to the complex.

The stadium and press levels will have 1,200 bench seats, which is a 450-seat increase from the previous number of 750 seats.

“We are looking forward to having a first-class facility that will benefit student-athletes, fans, family and friends,” Penn State field hockey head coach Char Morett-Curtiss said in a release. “It is a facility that will showcase high level hockey and give us the opportunity to offer a premium experience to everyone when we host postseason events, both Big Ten and NCAA. These improvements and additions will also turn the Penn State Field Hockey Complex into a venue that will allow us to host alumni events and other functions all year long.”

The complex will undergo construction during the fall 2022 season with an expected completion date in the fall of 2023. The field will still be used as the complex is worked on.
