It is understood that when the pitch is removed a concrete floor will be revealed allowing the stadium to host any kind of stadium event imaginable without destroying the hallowed turf. After each 'concrete floor' event the pitch would then be re-installed meaning important finals and internationals can be palyed on a perfect surface. However we won't see the new pitch until 2010 as the stadium has to close for one month in January next year to allow for the concrete floor to be constructed."

GREAT NEWS!

So what kind of technology does Millenium Stadium actually have?

Millennium employs a portable modular system. Each module is 1.15m square and integrates with each corresponding module by use of interlocking feet and the interface of soil between each module. Each stadium varies due to different size pitches but Millennium employs approximately just under 7000 individual modules. These modules sit on a smooth tarmac floor which can be used for virtually anything once modules are removed.

Only a small number of stadiums have adopted this technique since the Gelredome first put it into practice, so it might be a while until we see it being applied again.

For American college and pro football stadiums that use artificial turf, FieldTurf is the most prevalent. Competitors include:

Sportexe Powerblade HP+ (Arkansas, Southern Miss, North Texas, Middle Tennessee)

Desso Artificial Turf (Oklahoma State, Wyoming)

Desso Grassmaster Hybrid Turf (Denver Bronco Stadium, Lambeau Field, Phil. Eagles Stadium)

Hellas Matrix Turf (Baylor, UTEP, Cal, Alamodome, Cowboys Stadium, UNC-Charlotte)

UBU (Superdome, Paul Brown Stadium, Aloha Stadium, Metrodome)

ProGrass (Louisiana-Lafayette, Akron, Troy)

Just wondering, how is the development or the tendency in am. football? Does the sport lean towards more and more clubs installing artificial turf? Read that 13 out of 31? clubs in the NFL use artificial surface, as oppose to the MLS where it seems like the clubs are moving away from the artificial surface?

I think those numbers are right for Pro Football. In addition, a couple of stadiums have hybrid surfaces (Desso Grassmaster).

Out of 15 college football stadiums built or under construction the last 20 years, 11 use artificial turf.

As for older stadiums, nearly all of the SEC is grass, while most of the Big 10 and Big 12 are artificial. The Pac 12 is half and half, while the ACC is mostly grass.

Are there many Colleges/NFL teams out there who in contrast to the modern practice of installing artificial turf, maintain the use of grass?

Edit: I didn't mean that they maintain the use of grass for purely financial reasons or anything like that, more for the sake of tradition.

Sure. About half of them play on grass.

And what about the players? Do they care about what type of surface they play on, like in football (soccer) where the players all want to play on natural grass?

In 2010, the NFL surveyed its players. 69% preferred grass to 14% for artificial. The rest didn't care enough to choose.

But 82% said artificial turf was more likely to contribute to injury vs. 16% for grass.

Here are two articles from the American Journal of Sports Medicine comparing injury rates between natural grass and Fieldturf, one says yay the other says nay.

Well there you go. Guess it depends on who you`re doing the research on behalf of, who has ordered it. In soccer we keep reading reports that dismisses that arfificial surfaces causes more injuries vs grass, funny enough its the pro-artificial camp(s) who keep dishing out these reports. Meanwhile the players are telling a different story...
Speaking of which, does a similar survey exist for the MLS players?
