Help Design the Turf

Ohio State's getting new turf, and they want your help designing it.

Last month, Ohio State announced plans to replace its artificial turf ahead of next season, and it seems they want some fan input about what it could look like.

Ohio State announced on Friday that its new artificial turf playing surface will include "color and design schemes inspired by fans" and that it is now accepting fan-inspired design concepts.

Fans can submit their own designs for what they'd like the new turf to look like on the team website from Oct. 15 to Oct. 29. Designs can be in the form of photographs or PDFs, and children are encouraged to submit their own designs, as well.

Once the submissions are in, an internal department panel will review the submitted designs and ultimately create the turf's new look based on the fan designs.

Ohio State's had the same basic turf design since the 2007 season despite installing a new turf field ahead of the 2014 season.
