TCU football embarks on $2 million overhaul of outdoor practice field

TCU football has started on renovations to the team’s practice field — a project worth an estimated cost of $2 million, per TCU360’s Kristen Clarke.

The new field will be composed of a genetically-engineered form of Bermuda grass called “Tiff Tuff,” which can grow naturally in North Texas.

Ross Bailey, TCU’s senior associate athletics director, told Clarke that the grass is being imported and should be ready for use by late May. Bailey added that the new sand-based turf will allow for better drainage and a completely flat field.

The turf has already be used for the playing field for football’s Amon G. Carter Stadium and soccer’s Garvey-Rosenthal Soccer Stadium, per the report, making the football practice field the third facility on campus to implement the turf.
