There’s no better time of year to celebrate school spirit and generate buzz for your facility than Homecoming! As one of the most memorable community gatherings, a well-designed field can serve as the perfect foundation for a game worth remembering, and ultimately, lead to other long-term benefits like rising fan attendance figures, field rental inquiries, and future tournament opportunities. 

So, what can you do to introduce unforgettable style and a welcoming aesthetic for the big game this year? From the themed entryway to the field itself, there are a variety of exciting ideas you can consider to brighten the atmosphere and improve the experience for fans and athletes alike. 

After designing an imaginative variety of eye-catching and one-of-a-kind artificial football turf fields for our clients, here are some of our top picks for amplifying school spirit and improving the year-round experience.  

Design a Field That Honors Your School’s Theme

The simple addition of coordinating turf colors, a colorful mascot image, and vibrant line striping can transform a simple field into an extraordinary representation of school pride and enthusiasm. With our highly-detailed line work, your field immediately benefits from improved athlete and fan visibility. Vivid striping also aids referees, ensuring that fair calls and accurate guidelines lead to a better game for everyone on and off the field.

Creative Homecoming Decoration Ideas

As important as the look and playability of your turf field, it’s easy to elevate the energy of your facility with some well-placed decorations. Consider low-cost options like streamers and balloons, or invite the students to design some creative banners and signs to place throughout the stadium! With your collective creativity and an awesome Homecoming theme in mind, a festive update is one of the best ways to revolutionize the look and feel of your venue. 

Brighten the Space With Professional Lighting

Your beautiful field design and decorations deserve to be well-lit! If your field is dim or the seating area is too dark, upgrading your lighting scheme is another way to enhance the fan and player experience year-round. Indoor or outdoor, our professional field design and construction company can help you bring new light and energy to any layout you need assistance with. 

Improve Facility Comfort, Safety, & Convenience

Other vital updates such as seating comfort, facility cleanliness, and concession stand improvements should be considered before the Homecoming game. 

In the realm of fan safety, consider useful facility updates like handrails near the bleachers or protective netting to prevent fan injuries. On the comfort side of things, consider selling seat cushions, warm school apparel, and other thoughtful additions that would improve the overall guest experience. Additionally, maintaining a trash and vandalism-free facility should be part of your routine upkeep plan if it isn’t already. 

All of these quality-of-life additions can go a long way in establishing an inviting and enjoyable space that fans and athletes will appreciate. 

Make Repairs & Keep Up With Maintenance

Even the best decorations and lighting won’t hide damaged surfaces or netting. If you have any sports turf maintenance or repair needs, preparing for Homecoming is the perfect reason to make any necessary improvements.
