Time-Lapse Video Of U.S. Bank Stadium Turf Installation

New, comment

Yesterday, we brought you a look at U.S. Bank Stadium from the outside, via video shot from a drone. Today, we're moving things inside the new home of the Minnesota Vikings for another video that we've found online.

One of the final steps of the construction of U.S. Bank Stadium was the installation of the field turf that the team will be crushing their opponents on. Courtesy of the folks at EarthCam, we have a time-lapse video of the turf installation process from inside the stadium.

Despite the fact that much of U.S. Bank Stadium is going to be clear enough to see to the outside, the material that is used for the roof is constructed in a manner that will not allow the stadium to use a natural grass surface. Hence the reason that the field turf was being installed.

Granted, people laying down turf generally isn't a terribly exciting process. Still, it's pretty cool to see the end zones just sort of swap over to our favorite color and the midfield logo just sort of appear in this video, among other things.
