Closure for renovations

To efficiently and safely replace the turf and lighting, Sunset Chev Stadium will be temporarily closed for district and public use from May 31 to July 15. Here are details about the upgrades:

  • Turf: Removal of the old turf material is scheduled to begin May 31. The new turf will include an e-layer, a bonded rubber shock pad placed between the ground and the turf for increased player safety. The material, AstroTurf RootZone 3D3, is the same turf at Husky Stadium and Sparks Stadium.
  • Lighting: Scheduled for June 6-17, the lighting replacement includes all pole lights in the stadium and on the soccer/baseball field. The LED lighting is more energy efficient and produces less light spillage with direct downward light onto the field.
