Boise State Football

Want to buy a piece of Boise State’s famous blue turf? Now you can. Here’s how.

Boise State had said in previous weeks that fans would not be able to buy a piece of the newly replaced blue turf at Albertsons Stadium.

Well, it turns out you now can.

The school announced Monday that fans can buy a 1-square-foot section of the most recent edition of the turf at the public unveiling Wednesday. The event at Albertsons Stadium on the sixth edition of the Blue is open to BAA members at 5 p.m. and the general public at 6 p.m. It is set to conclude at 8 p.m.

At the event, 500 pieces will be for sale at $39.95 apiece. Per Boise State, if sales go well, there could be future opportunities to buy more. There is not currently an online purchase option, so the only option is in person. There will be an area set up through the Bronco Shop to buy them on the Hall of Fame patio Wednesday.

“We’re excited to be able to do this,” Athletic Director Curt Apsey said in a statement. “We didn’t initially think it was going to be possible, but our operations crew was able to save some rolls, get them cut and prepare them for sale.”
