Philadelphia University
Soccer/Lacrosse Field
Philadelphia, Pennsylvania
Opened August 2007

Philadelphia University’s soccer and lacrosse field wasn’t performing up to the standards of an ‘A’ level NCAA field. This cost the school money in additional repairs, cancelled games, and yearly overhaul projects.

With a project timeline that started in June and ended in early August, with the beginning of soccer season, the staff turned to Shearon Sport’s to get the job done efficiently. Shearon quickly diagnosed the issues and designed a plan that included a state-of-the-art drainage system, tailored irrigation system, modified soil profile, and an improved grading plan.

Our construction team envisioned a process to complete the field within the tight timeline. As forecasted, Shearon came in on time and within budget. Philadelphia University was able to open their new soccer field on opening day delighting the school officials, coaches, athletes and fans.

As a result, Philadelphia University’s lacrosse and soccer fields are one of the top fields in the Central Atlantic Collegiate Conference. To this day Shearon provides daily maintenance services, expert management of irrigation and drainage systems, and specialized turf services to keep consistently, maintained the fields and keep them at top level.
