Crews ready Arizona Stadium for installation of FieldTurf

Arizona Stadium

The makeover of Arizona Stadium continues, with construction crews in the process of moving dirt and leveling the playing surface at Arizona Stadium in advance of the installation of FieldTurf CoolPlay turf.

The fake green stuff goes in around June 1.

The old grass field at Arizona Stadium wasn’t perfectly centered, but the new turf will be. The Wildcats, as they come out of the tunnel from their new locker room in the Lowell-Stevens facility in the north end zone, will pretty much split the uprights.

The football program is expected to move into the facility this summer.

Seating in the north end zone was closed last season during construction. The lower bowl of the north zone will be re-opened for seating, which includes chair-back seats this time. There is also new premium seating in the Lowell-Stevens Club.

Arizona invited the media into Arizona Stadium to take some pictures/video of the construction Monday.
