Legacy Field is part of a $26 million renovation of Luther’s athletic facilities. The blue turf was funded exclusively by private donations. The deterioration of the natural grass field sparked the decision to switch to artificial turf.
Paula Carlson, President of Luther College, said “The new field will provide a first-class athletic experience for our students,” and surpass all of the conference competitors in terms of safety.
The Norse took to the blue turf for the first time on September 9th wearing all-blue uniforms. Luther’s home opener resulted in a victory, beating St. Olaf College 44-20.
