Bentonville ready to put new turf in stadium

Posted: May 28, 2014 at 8:39 a.m.

Bentonville players run through situational game plays Friday, May 23, 2014, during Bentonville High School's spring practice at Tiger Stadium in Bentonville. The team will be getting a new turf field over the summer.

The time has come for Tiger Stadium to receive a new look, and the same goes for the Tiger Athletic Complex soccer field.

Turf Sponsorship Levels

Any businesses, companies or families that donate certain amounts of money toward the new turf surfaces at Tiger Stadium and the Tiger Athletic Complex soccer field will be honored in the following manner:

• Legacy Sponsor ($5,000 per year for 10 years or $45,000 in advance): Will receive three logos — all 7 feet by 10 feet in size — as well as a number of other recognitions. Sponsor logos will be placed on home and visitor sidelines at Tiger Stadium and on the home side of the soccer field. These sponsorships are good for 10 years, as well as any additional life to the turf surfaces.

• Tiger Sponsor ($3,000 per year for 10 years or $27,000 in advance): Will receive one 10-foot by 15-foot logo to be placed on the north end of Tiger Stadium, as well as a number of other recognitions. These sponsorships are good for 10 years, as well as any additional life to the turf surfaces.

Athletic director Scott Passmore said he has already received $890,000 in commitments from those who have signed an agreement, and there are eight sponsorships remaining as of last week. Anyone who is interested in becoming a sponsor may contact Passmore at 254-5170 or email spassmore@bentonvillek12.org.
