Natural Turf Sports Field for Super Bowl XLII Played on AirField Systems AirDrain Agronomic Natural Grass Drainage
The 2008 Super Bowl was played on an AirField Systems Natural Turf Sports Field at the University of Phoenix Stadium, home of the Arizona Cardinals.
A Super Bowl played after a nearly two year process of testing over twenty drainage systems, AirField Systems was selected for the state of the art 18.9 million pound rolling tray field.
This new stadium is the most advanced in the country, allowing the natural grass field to grow in the sunlight, then mechanically rolled inside for events and game play.
In addition the BCS Bowl and the Tostitos Fiesta Bowl, numerous high profile events and professional game play have been hosted on the field.
Thru a research project conducted at Texas A&M, it was concluded that you can reduce your irrigation needs using AirField Systems AirDrain. The five year research project was jointly funded by the United States Golf Association and AirField Systems and was a collaborative effort between Texas A&M, AirField Systems and the United States Golf Association. The data from the research showed that the AirField Systems drainage profile provided up to three more days of plant available water than a United States Golf Association recommended gravel and sand profile.
