Wesley College held a ribbon cutting ceremony at the DE Turf Sports Complex in Frederica, DE on Tuesday, November 14, 2017. Members of the community, elected officials, board of trustees, faculty, staff, students, Wally the Wolverine, and coaches were on hand to officially acknowledge the partnership between the two organizations.
Wesley has teamed up with DE Turf, through the generosity of a local supporter of Wesley College, to sponsor one of the twelve fields at the complex. Wesley’s Field One is part of the largest all-synthetic turf sports complex in the mid-Atlantic that is located in Central Delaware. The sports tourism venue serves the regional community with synthetic turf fields, five lighted fields, and a championship stadium with seating for 700 people. It also offers free public Wi-Fi, a multipurpose room for educational programming, on-site parking and only 30 miles from Delaware’s beaches.
“This partnership is a win-win for everyone,” said Wesley College President Robert E. Clark II. “We are excited to have a field that our students can utilize when not being used in competition by teams from around the region and nation. Additionally, this is a great branding opportunity for our College and community. The Wesley College field and this amazing facility will help make Delaware a prized sports destination, contributing to the tourism industry as well as offering a state-of-the-art sports venue for local, regional, and national athletes.”
