The 2000 season brings
with it new turf for the Giants.
Here is the Team Giants report on this from
A poll showed that 96 to 97 percent of NFL players prefer grass to
Astroturf, and Giants Stadium will have it for the year 2000 football season.
The change to natural turf had been under discussion for the past four years,
with the problem being finding a grass strain that could hold up into November
and December with two football teams playing.
Jets president, Steve Gutman, said that this was the first time the provider could
guarantee a good playing surface throughout the year. Giants president, John Mara,
suggested that since the players like natural grass so much, it could be beneficial
in attracting free agents. The field will cost about $1 million to install and
about $450,000 annually to maintain, and during a season worn sections could be
replaced three times.

9/23/00 - The
New Jersey Sports and Exposition Authority originally said the new grass at Giants
Stadium would have to be replaced four times a year and estimated the cost at
$500,000-$700,000. Sports Authority chief executive James DiEleuterio Jr. said
yesterday it is likely the grass will be replaced as many as six times this year,
raising maintenance costs by about $100,000.
