The renovation of Sabine Field is a 10-month, $5 million project that will bring outdoor sports to a new level at Norwich.
In addition to an artificial turf surface that will be used for a broader variety of sports and activities, plans include a new grandstand and media box, all-weather track, lighting, new scoreboard and connector between Plumley Armory and the field.
When complete, Sabine will no longer serve as just a football field. Renovations open the field to use by soccer, lacrosse and rugby teams, as well as Corps of Cadets training.
This just one project paid for by the successful three-year Bearing the Torch fundraising campaign. Construction began Nov. 5, 2012, and is expected to conclude in time for the 2013 fall sports season. And don't worry, Norwich's classic WWII M4 Sherman tank Sabine Sally will return, better than ever!
