When Minnesota’s football team takes the field at TCF Bank Stadium for the first time in 2019, it will be feeling new turf under its feet.
This spring, Minnesota has replaced the turf at TCF Bank Stadium, a process that started after the team’s spring season came to a conclusion. A week ago, the venue looked like a giant parking lot. On Monday, the field looks almost game-ready.
Minnesota released pictures of the progress on Twitter Monday morning:

The new turf comes to TCF Bank Stadium after MLS team Minnesota United played two seasons at the venue before opening Allianz Field this year. The team wanted a grass surface as opposed to turf.
With soccer out of the picture, TCF Bank Stadium is ready for some fresh turf. And significant progress has already been made. It should look really good when August final gets here.
