Local High School Football Stadiums Sell Naming Rights
WTHR Eyewitness Sports
Hamilton Southeastern and Fishers High School’s football stadiums are getting new names and money to help pay for artificial turf.
Fishers will be called Reynolds Tiger Stadium and Hamilton Southeastern will be Reynolds Royals Stadium.
Reynolds Farm Equipment is paying $400,000 for naming rights.
The school district says that’s just the first large donation to help pay for the $1.4 million cost for the turf. They hope to raise another $700,000 by the end of the month so they can begin installation soon and have the fields ready by the next school year.
Westfield High School, meantime, is moving forward with plans for synthetic turf on the field used by the soccer and lacrosse teams.
The school district accepted Gameday Turf’s $670,000 bid to install the new field. Gameday is the same company that installed Noblesville High School’s turf.
