They “fixed” the issue this season by putting in a bermudagrass field right before the season started. Brilliant.that Soldier Field turf is a disaster before any team plays there
do you or anyone know the issue? why doesn't the sod take root and hold up?
also, IIRC, ownership wanted to put in artificial turf but the people (union) who cut the grass and take care of the current grass turf raised hell because they feared there would be job losses
Making it the only athletic field in the north/Midwest to use bermudagrass, which thrives in the south and in tropical climates. Can’t make this stuff up.
