The Georgia Redcoat Marching Band now has its own field to practice for football Saturdays. UGA dedicated the new field off College Station Road to the band in November.

Work on the field began last year and included installing a retaining wall, drainage system and perimeter lighting to enable night practice. Funding for the renovations came from the President’s Venture Fund.

When not in use by the Redcoat Band, the field will be made available to the department of recreational sports for intramural activities.
