The brand new Football Field at the Ignacio High school has been a much anticipated and exciting new facility for athletes and community members alike.

The new football field will feature a synthetic field, or Astro Turf, as opposed to a traditional field with real grass. The field will be one of the only synthetic fields in the surrounding areas in Colorado.

The field will meet the new state standards for Football as well as Track, which could allow Ignacio High School to host Track Meets as a result.

The field and track are the only two things that will be brand nee. The spectator stands and concession stand will not be remodeled and are still in excellent condition. Virtually, the stands will be used for years to come.

The Field will be completed first and followed immediately by the track. The Football Field will be completed by the middle of august, and before the first football game of the season.

“So far it has been on schedule… [with very minor issues],” Says Superintendent Rocco Fuschetto , “Everything is moving right along as expected.”
