Williams Stadium's new FieldTurf arrives on Friday.

Midway through Friday afternoon, the new FieldTurf for Williams Stadium started to arrive, helping Liberty get one step closer to completing the surface renovations of its football stadium.
 
Trucks arrived at Williams Stadium and unloaded 32 rolls of FieldTurf with a second truck set to arrive on Saturday with the remaining rolls and other necessary materials to complete the project.
 
The installation crew will begin working on the sidelines on Saturday morning, while the complete installation project is scheduled to take 10 to 14 days (weather permitting).
 
The installation of new FieldTurf is one of numerous athletics facility upgrades to take place all around the Liberty University campus this summer. Earlier this week, flag poles were installed atop the East stands at Williams Stadium and on the lawn in front of the Hancock Athletic Center.
 
The floor in the top portion of the Hancock Athletic Center weight room was renovated, while the court and the surface around the court were redone at the Vines Center.
 
Finally, besides the surface renovations at Williams Stadium, the completion of the Williams Football Operation Center is within days as construction crews are putting the finishing touches on the 60,000 square foot state-of-the-art facility.
