Strawberry Stadium is to begin installing new turf in mid-January 2012. The old track surface will be removed and the 1 year old "new turf" installed. The new surface was used for one year in the 2010 season in the Mercedes-Benz Superdome by the New Orleans Saints and Tulane University. The high quality UBU-Speed Series-S5-M turf is replaced every year by the Superdome although it has a multi-year warranty.
New endzone paint will say "Southeastern" in the north endzone and "Lions" in the south endzone with the trademark Southeastern "S" at midfield.
With the removal of the old track, the women's soccer team will be able to host games at the stadium.
