MetLife Stadium getting new synthetic turf after injury concerns
The Giants and Jets will play on a new synthetic field this season at MetLife Stadium, but the co-owner of the Giants hopes that is not a permanent solution.
“I foresee a day, my hope is we can get to a day at some point in the future when we can have a grass field that we’re able to maintain with two different teams and all the other events we have,” John Mara said Tuesday at the NFL meetings. “I think we can get there at some point, Maybe it’s a hybrid product or something.”
The slit film synthetic turf currently in place at MetLife Stadium is often cited by players as one of the worst surfaces in the league.
