Event Description

Join us to kick off historic renovations for Bethel Athletics that will serve generations of future Royals. This key priority of Bethel's Called to More campaign is poised to transform Royal Stadium by:

  • adding Bethel's first-ever outdoor track
  • building new jump, vault, and throws areas for track and field
  • installing multiuse artificial turf on the football field

These upgrades will help Bethel continue its mission to provide transformative experiences for student-athletes.

Everyone is invited-bring your children and friends! Come ready for a Bethel game day experience with concessions, music, games, and more. So wear your favorite Royal apparel to the groundbreaking ceremony. We will also celebrate the retirement of Bob Bjorklund. After 24 years at Bethel University, including the last 17 as the director of athletics, Bjorklund will retire at the end of May 2021.

Open house 1:30-3 p.m., short program at 2 p.m.

Learn more about Bethel's bold vision for a bright future!
