How Tennessee State football's Hale Stadium could get artificial turf
Tennessee State's Hale Stadium, which is 69 years old, could get an artificial turf surface if a survey reveals more fans would attend football games if improvements were made at the historic on-campus venue.
Surveys were sent Monday to students, alumni, fans and anyone interested in the program.
Here's the link to the survey: tnstateu.az1.qualtrics.com/jfe/form/SV_0DvnpYQ7NQk8Ut0.
In most seasons TSU splits its home games at Hale Stadium (10,000 capacity) and Nissan Stadium (69,143 capacity).
In the 2020 season, which was played in the spring of 2021, all home games were at Hale Stadium. This past season all home games were at Nissan Stadium.
In 2022 the Tigers are scheduled to play Lane on Oct. 1 at Hale Stadium while playing Bethune-Cookman Oct. 8 and UT Martin Nov. 12 at Nissan Stadium.
The site for two other home games — Eastern Illinois (Oct. 22) and Southeast Missouri (No. 5) — is to be determined.
