SOUTH BEND, Ind. (AP) — Notre Dame Stadium is getting a layer of natural turf in preparation for a professional soccer match.
Crews began unrolling large rolls of turf at the stadium Monday ahead of Friday's scheduled friendly matchup between Liverpool F.C. and Borussia Dortmund.
Fenway Sports Group is the owner of the Liverpool team and the Boston Red Sox. It's leasing the stadium as part of a three-city tour that will include preseason friendly matches at the stadium, Fenway Park and Yankee Stadium.
