Just last week, we brought you the exhilarating news that the sod was being replaced at Bayern Munich’s famed stadium, the Allianz Arena. Now, we are not just bringing you the heat of such excitement in words, but we have actual video of what the process looked like.

For grass enthusiasts, it doesn’t get much better than watching grass get laid. I would absolutely label this video NSFW for some. Please watch in private if you are worried you will become too excited:

The Allianz Arena looks to be in excellent shape heading into the opener. Below are some of my favorite still frames from the video (there were frankly too many too many to list, but I really had to narrow down the selections):

Striking! Magnificent! Behold the new pitch at the Allianz Arena!

With the start of the Bundesliga season just one day away, the new turf at the Allianz Arena should be in pristine condition for Robert Lewandowski, Thomas Müller, Manuel Neuer, Kingsley Coman, and the rest of the Bayern Munich squad.
