Bavarian Grass Works: Bayern Munich not just sitting on its grass

New, comments

Always in pursuit of “turf-fection”, Bayern Munich has installed a new pitch that looks to be one fine plot of grass.

When building a championship caliber squad, the planning is a grassroots initiative.

Literally.

With that in mind, Bayern Munich has refreshed its pitch with a sultry new surface that is sure to have Hansi Flick, Robert Lewandowski, Thomas Muller, Joshua Kimmich, Serge Gnabry, Alphonso Davies, and the rest of the boys yearning for more time to just admire that grass.

To get the new turf down, Bayern Munich unleashed a group of true grassmen, who were abreast of the need for a new surface and jumped at the chance to slap that new grass down.

As FCBayern.com indicated, the crew used “hand-guided machines” to get the job done. In all, nine greens-keepers neatly laid the new special sports turf from Schwerin over three days. It was a marathon grass session if you will.

The greens-keepers are truly experts and not just dragging grass around the arena. If a weed ever appears, these guys will pull it out of their grass for sure. For these guys, this really is not a job, it’s fun. They are always up for a little grass-play.

Anyway, when it comes to field maintenance, Bayern Munich is always sure to cover its grass with the best turf in the industry.

Pure turf-ection!
