FACILITIES & DIRECTIONS

AUGSBURG DOME

Located on the campus of Augsburg University in Minneapolis, Minn., the Augsburg University Dome consists of a fully inflated bubble that covers a 120yd x 65yd playing surface. The facility boasts four batting cages, driving range net, and four full size soccer goals.

A new state-of-the-art bubble was installed in the fall of 2006 with hanging lights, creating a more spacious and well-lit facility.

In the summer of 2013, Augsburg installed a new FieldTurf Revolution surface for Edor Nelson Field. The playing surface looks, feels and plays like natural grass, but it is safer and far more durable than older-style artificial-turf surfaces. The infill features a mix of rubber and sand to give the field a natural feel.

The dome and the artificial-turf surface make Edor Nelson Field a valuable asset for the university. The facility is used constantly, not only by Augsburg athletic teams, but also by numerous community groups, such as intramural teams, walkers and indoor soccer leagues in the winter months, golfers who use the domed field as an indoor driving range, track and field athletes, baseball and softball players in the early spring, and amateur and semi-pro soccer teams in the summer.
