In tandem with the NFL Foundation Grassroots Program, the Cincinnati Bengals contributed $250,000 to the Louisville Metro Housing Authority Development Corporation toward the installation of an artificial turf field in a replacement park in west Louisville’s Russell neighborhood.
The park will see usage from Louisville youth football league teams, among others.
“Using the game of football to make a positive impact on our community is a top priority for the Bengals,” Bengals Director of Community Engagement Alex Simons said. “The artificial turf field in this park is going to create a lasting impact for Louisville youth in the Russell neighborhood for years to come.”
The NFL Foundation Grassroots Program is a partnership between the NFL Foundation and Local Initiatives Support Corporation (LISC), a community development organization.
