In 2007 the Hofstra University Field Hockey program moved into a brand new facility on the north side of campus.
The new Hofstra University Field Hockey Stadium includes bleacher seating, a press box, and is outfitted with the state-of-the-art Hockey Grass Club surface, a synthetic turf designed solely for field hockey by Sportexe.
Sportexe® HockeyGrass™Club, a smooth and predictable, fast and incredibly durable surface, is a special tufted nylon system that delivers optimum performance. Approved by the Fédération Internationale de Hockey (FIH), Sportexe® HockeyGrass™Club is the official artificial turf system of the National Field Hockey Coaches Association (NFHCA).
Sportexe®, which has decades of field hockey installation expertise, is proud of its partnership with the NFHCA, working with the Association on R&D efforts to enhance field hockey systems.
The Pride opened the Stadium September 14, 2007, versus Yale. The Pride’s Brit Blankmeyer scored the first goal in stadium history 8:17 into the contest.
