The field for the upcoming Super Bowl is in decent shape so far, with logos at the 25 yard lines, the Big Shield at the 50, and team names and logos in each end zone. Players are already on the field for warm-ups, and the grass seems to be functioning as intended without any slipping or sliding.
However, despite this promising start, players are not yet making full-speed cuts. Therefore, it remains to be seen if the field will hold up during the game. Last year’s Super Bowl field was a disaster, with league officials blaming players for not wearing the right shoes when conditions were raised by owners during the March 2023 annual meetings.
This incident had a significant impact on the game and highlighted the importance of getting it right this year. The league must ensure that they provide a safe and playable surface for athletes to compete on.
