Kinnick Stadium Field Design Will Include Tigerhawk

From University Of Iowa Sports Information:

IOWA CITY, Iowa — The nationally-recognized University of Iowa Tigerhawk logo, which has served as the national brand logo for Hawkeye athletics since 1979, will be featured at midfield in Kinnick Stadium when the Hawkeyes open the 2017 season on Sept. 2, against Wyoming.

The playing surface in Kinnick Stadium will feature an Iowa logo for the first time since the conclusion of the 1980 football season, as the Tigerhawk will be installed at midfield when the new FieldTurf is put in place in the coming weeks.

The Tigerhawk logo will be black with gold trim, and will face north to south between the 45-yardlines, so that television cameras will show the logo facing left to right. The Kinnick Stadium playing surface is being replaced this summer as part of the first phase of the Kinnick Edge project, which will see the entire north end zone stands replaced following the 2017 season.
