December 2, 2008 - The Dallas Cowboys will be “rolling out” their turf at their new stadium. The NFL franchise announced it will use a turf
system by Austin-based Hellas Construction that has 41 interchangeable panels that make up three fields.
The panels can be rolled up and stored on the event level of the stadium when it is not used and can be converted
into different configurations within 48 hours.
“It allows the stadium to convert from pro football to college football to soccer or lacrosse in a relatively short period of time so they can host any kind of sporting event and give the uniqueness of the artificial turf they want to play on,” said Hellas chief executive Reed Seaton.
The artificial field is RealGrass Matrix. The Cowboys use the RealGrass product at Texas Stadium and at the Valley Ranch practice fields, according to a news release.
