The new field at Notre Dame Preparatory in Scottsdale is almost complete, with crews putting the finishing touches on just in time for the first varsity home football game.

The school’s first varsity home football game on the highly anticipated new field will be played Sept. 25 against Sunnyslope High School, according to a press release.

The field features a high definition digital video scoreboard, artificial turf, state-of-the-art LED stadium lighting and a home team grandstand with custom seats spelling “NDP.”

Bemis Field will also be venue for school’s hockey and lacrosse home games, the release stated.

Bemis Field is named for NDP’s first football coach, Scot A. Bemis who led his teams to state championship wins in 2007 and 2008. Mr. Bemis died of cancer in January 2012 at age 45, according to the release.

Notre Dame Preparatory is at 9701 E. Bell Road in Scottsdale.
