Premier Health Stadium to Get New Turf in November 2020

Above is a rendering of what the new turf will look like.



After installing new lights at Premier Health Stadium and also adding a new sound system in the summer of 2020, Northmont City Schools is proud to announce that the stadium turf will be replaced beginning in November 2020.  The current turf is in its 11th season of use.  They average life span for field turf is 10 years, so our current turf has exceeded the normal life expectancy.  Northmont will be partnering with the Motz group once again to complete the project.  The project is being funded without using any money from the district’s general operating funds.  The money for the project came from Premier Health sponsorships, money from the Thunderback Club, Soccer Parents Association and the Northmont Band Boosters, as well as funds raised through facility rentals.


The Northmont Athletic Department will be spearheading a fundraiser throughout the fall to help raise additional funds for the turf project.

  • First – We are looking for sponsors at 3 different levels – Platinum Donors $5,000, Gold Donors $1,000 and Silver Donors $100.  Donors will be recognized by having their names on plaques at the entrance to the stadium.  
  • Second – We will develop a grid of the field and are asking people to sponsor a square for $50.  The Endzone will be divided into 5 sections (one for each letter – BOLTS) and those will be sold for $100 per square.  The center circle and logo will be sold for $500.  


The project should be completed in time for the spring 2021 lacrosse season.  After the coronavirus canceled the 2020 spring sports season, 2021 will now be the inaugural season for lacrosse at Northmont High School.
