Ball State University Synthetic Turf - REPLACED After 8 Years - Let's Do the Math

The IndyStar posted an article today on the replacement of synthetic turf football playing surface at Ball State University.



Let's do a little simple math:

Cost to install - $750,000

Cost of ownership per year for 8 years - $93,750.00
Maintenance of surface per year - $10,000.00

Total cost per year for the past 8 years - $103,750.00

Cost for replacement - $386,141.00


Cost of ownership per year for 8 years - $48,267.63
Maintenance of surface per year - $10,000.00

Cost per year for next 8 years - 58,267.63

Average Cost PER YEAR for the first 16 years of the plastic surface - $81,008.81

A question - HOW IS THAT CHEAPER THAN A NATURAL GRASS SURFACE?

Answer - IT IS NOT CHEAPER - Most High Schools spend $10,000 - $20,000 per year to maintain a football field.
