Siena Turf Field



Siena College broke ground on Siena Turf Field in the summer of 2006 and the facility was first open for use by the Siena community in December 2006. The $2.9 million facility was financed through the College and the generosity of individual donors. Clough Harbour & Associates served as the design firm, and Clark Companies handled the construction. On May 6, 2007 Siena College President Fr. Kevin Mackin officially blessed the turf field prior to the intramural flag football championship game.

Siena Turf Field serves as the home for four of the college's varsity sports - Men's Lacrosse, Women's Lacrosse, Men's Soccer and Field Hockey - which first began varsity competition using the field in the spring of 2007. Additionally, the facility serves as the home to a number of the college's intramural teams. The facility includes seating for 1,000, as well as a press box, scoreboard and terrace area. The artificial surface is FieldTurf's monofilament product, which is the latest generation of turf surfaces.



In just a short time, Siena Turf Field has already served as the host for both 2008 MAAC Men's Lacrosse and Women's Soccer Championships.

The Men's Lacrosse team christened the new field with a 15-2 victory over Merrimack on March 10, 2007 in the first varsity sporting event hosted by the facility. The Saints have enjoyed great success at their new home, posting an impressive 40-13 (.755) record which has helped propel the program to its first three MAAC Championships and NCAA Tournament appearances in 2009, 2011 and 2013.

Women's Lacrosse and Field Hockey have also enjoyed their new confines, posting improved records at home the past few seasons. The men's soccer program was the most recent of the four varsity sports to make the full-time move to the turf for the start of their 2009 fall season.
