It’s Game Day for Our New Stadium and Alumni Center!
“This project gets us in the ball game!”
– John Kratz, Board of Trustees
On November 7, 2009, Heidelberg played its first football game on campus since 1964, 45 years ago.
This very special homecoming was due to the installation of an artificial turf field in 2008, made possible by the support of Heidelberg alumni Cliff (’27) and Mary (’32) Saurwein. Heidelberg won the game, and has played all of its home games on this field ever since.
Now, it’s time for the next step: to construct an Athletic Stadium, with an Alumni Center component, which will provide a permanent place for the entire campus community to gather and experience athletics and events together. A place where we can welcome new students into the Heidelberg experience, not just for the time they spend with us on campus, but for the rest of their lives. And a place where you who have gone on to do Heidelberg proud can return, remember and feel part of us again. Today, it’s Game Day for building a home for athletics and alumni at Heidelberg!
