GREAT FALLS – When fans come to watch sporting events at Memorial Stadium in Great Falls when the fall season rolls around, the field will have a different look to it. The field is currently under construction to install a brand new turf field. This is the first time in the stadium’s 100-year history that the playing surface will be something other than grass.
The switch from a grass field was made because turf is a lot easier to maintain. The field is supposed to be ready by late August – just in time for the fall sports season.
