Boise State will again sell pieces of the famous blue turf from Albertsons Stadium.

Fans can pick up a square foot of the old rug for $39.95 starting Wednesday at an unveiling event. The school will sell 500 pieces – which would net nearly $20,000 in proceeds if they all sell. Additional pieces could go up for sale in the future.

Boise State initially said it would not be able to sell turf pieces this time around.

“We’re excited to be able to do this,” Apsey said. “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.”

During an unveiling event Wednesday, Bronco Athletic Association members will get first dibs on the turf at 5 p.m. – with the general public getting their chance at 6 p.m.

Crews spent recent weeks replacing and expanding the turf – with a new edge-to-edge look covering an area where the track used to sit.
