There are 6 comments on New Track, Turf on Tap for Nickerson Field

  1. Wonderful article about a great field. Just to clarify, the Boston Breakers’ Women’s Professional Soccer (WPS) team which played at Nickerson from 2001 to 2003 is no longer defunct! They will be resuming professional play in April 2009, and look forward to many exciting games at the Harvard Stadium next year.

  2. Great to hear about all the exciting improvements going on there. However, it would be even better if BU jettisoned the idea of artificial turf altogether and planted natural grass. It may take some more maintenance, but it’s worth the change.

    The school could really make a positive splash for the environment and for its public relations by switching to grass to offset some carbon emissions. And, despite FieldTurf’s cushioning, nothing could be better for the athletes – especially the soccer players – than natural grass.
