The first phase of BB&T Field was completed in 2008 in time for the beginning of soccer and football season. The renovations included a new FieldTurf playing surface and scoreboard.
FieldTurf is a synthetic artificial turf that looks like real grass and is safer than the old fashion artificial turf. The BB&T Field playing surface is lined for both football, soccer and lacrosse.
Prior to the 2009 academic year, a brand-new state-of-the-art track was installed at The BB&T Field.
The track is a blue TUFLITE Synthetic Surface that was installed by United Sports Systems out of Wichita, Kansas. The TUFLITE Synthetic Surface is used by various National Football League (NFL) teams, high schools, colleges and United States Military bases. The Bank of Kentucky Field track is the only TUFLITE surface track in the Tri-State area. The track is a 400-meter, eight lane track with a steeple chase, long/triple jump and pole vault pits.
In 2015, the turf had lacrosse lines added for the Saints' inaugural season of women's lacrosse.
No pets are allowed in BB&T Field.
