NASHVILLE, Tenn. -- The Tennessee Titans are tearing up the grass field at Nissan Stadium and replacing it with a synthetic surface before the 2023 season.
The Titans announced the change Tuesday. The team, which already has started work, is making the change after reviewing injury rates and knowing how difficult it is to grow grass at Nissan Stadium since it opened in 1999.
"Ultimately there's just a limit to how much can be done for a natural grass surface in this part of the country," said Burke Nihill, the team president and CEO. "This turf is cutting-edge technology and will be a huge improvement in terms of consistency and performance.
