The next time the Bison football team takes the field at the FargoDome in September they'll be playing on a brand new surface. Today the Dome announced a partnership with Gate City Bank on a new turf that will be installed next June.

It's called Astroturf Gameday Grass 3D. It's the same surface that's used at the Edward Jones Dome where the St. Louis Rams play. Gate City Bank is paying $1 million for the naming rights. The total cost of the project is about $3 million. There are also changes to the layout with yellow endzones and a Bison logo at midfield. The head coach says the current surface is past its prime.
