Mississippi Valley State University has begun to raise money for our “Touchdown 4 Turf” campaign, a grassroots effort to raise $2 million for a total rehabilitation of Rice-Totten Stadium Football field and track surface. Adding this new surface will improve drainage and the playability of the field, as well as help ensure the safety for all of our students that will use the field. In addition to benefiting MVSU student-athletes, the new turf will provide value to the community by hosting multiple high school football games, track and field meets, soccer matches, concerts, commencements and more. The goal is to place MVSU as the epicenter for Mississippi Delta outdoor events.

“This upgrade to Rice-Totten Stadium permits us to offer the best possible experience to our students and students-athletes moving forward. It is exciting to know that this project thus far, has been driven by private and corporate donors. Any time we can make significant improvements to our facilities constitutes a win for our university, as well as our community.” said Dr. Jerryl Briggs, President for Mississippi Valley State University.

“The field will be lined for football and soccer, and allow for multi-sport training throughout the year. It will also be available for many community-based activities and rental as well.” said Dianthia Ford-Kee, Athletics Director for Mississippi Valley State University.
The goal for “Touchdown for Turf” is to cover the cost for the new field turf and resurfacing the track. The objectives are:
Donors can contribute at various levels ranging from $25 to over $50,000. For more information, visit mvsu.edu, mvsusports.com or mvsuvclub.com
