When the Youngstown State football team plays its home opener at Stambaugh Stadium in 2020, they'll be on a new surface.

Plans are underway to replace the current turf sometime in the summer.

The current field has been down since 2011, and with all the football, concerts, and other activities, it has shown its wear and tear.

The university is taking bids.

Its expected the new field will have a new design on it, but what it is is still being planned.
