MARYVILLE, Mo. - Northwest Missouri State University football fans will be able to purchase their own piece of Bearcat Stadium turf this summer.
The university's department of athletics will be selling 3x3 and 6x6 pieces of the recently removed turf that saw Northwest go 42-4 overall in nine seasons.
Fans can purchase an approximate 3x3 foot piece for $25 or an approximate 6x6 foot piece for $100. These pieces are sold as-is and are on a first-come, first serve basis.
There will be no pre-sale for these pieces and only cash or checks made out to the Northwest Foundation will be accepted. Fans must purchase and pick up their piece of the turf at Bearcat Stadum as items will not be available for shipping. A 3x3 piece of the turf weighs approximately 4 lbs. and a 6x6 piece weights 16 lbs.
The turf will be on sale from 1-5 p.m. on July 27-28 and from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. on July 29.
The center paw at the 50-yard line has been preserved as whole and will be auctioned off. Details and the date of the auction will be announced at a later time.
