The San Francisco 49ers are back home to wrap up their 2015 preseason schedule, and that means it is time for a little chatter about the state of the Levi's Stadium field. The site played host to a Luke Bryan concert last weekend, and the field has subsequently been replaced.
A few of the 49ers media folks have gotten some pictures of the field, and had some comments about its condition. It seems like all is well at this point, but I figure it's worth a little something for now. Chris Biderman had this to say about the field:
Looks like the north side of the 50 is same grass from Dallas game. South side (where concert stage was) looks new. https://t.co/dc7bGmMVNx— Chris Biderman (@ChrisBiderman) September 3, 2015
Fooch's update: It's a partially re-sodding with full sodding before Vikings MNF opener.
He also had this picture from the press box:
Another new field was put down this week in Levi's Stadium. pic.twitter.com/iE9KotYBzj— Chris Biderman (@ChrisBiderman) September 3, 2015
Finally, Matt Barrows posted this to Instagram, with a caption mentioning that the hope is it lasts until midseason. The field is playing host to the "Friday Night Lights" high school football series on September 18, and then 49ers-Packers 16 days later. We'll see how it holds up.
