Levi’s Stadium has turf issues before Super Bowl 50

Sunday February 7th, 2016

Levi’s Stadium experienced some turf issues ahead of Super Bowl 50. 

The stadium has had a history of turf problems. Last year, the team replaced 100 yards worth of the field. This season, the grass was re-sodded at least six times before Sunday’s game.

Ahead of the Super Bowl, groundskeepers adjusted some chunks of grass, while Broncos receivers seemingly had some issues planting their feet.

A new turf was installed for the game in January.
