Retractable Playing Field  

State Farm Stadium's retractable field is a remarkable engineering achievement. The natural grass playing surface is contained in a single tray, measuring 234 feet wide and 403 feet long, with a depth of 40 inches. The field rolls on 546 steel wheels, gliding on 13 railroad-like tracks. In just 70 minutes, at the push of a button, the field can be moved 740 feet in or out of the stadium.    

The field, composed of Tifway 419 grass, has been meticulously designed to replicate the feel and playability of a traditional grass surface. When parked outside, the field enjoys maximum exposure to the desert sun while also providing unrestricted access to the stadium floor for other events and staging purposes. This versatility and attention to detail make the retractable field at State Farm Stadium a true marvel in the world of sports venues.  

  

Retractable Roof  

The roof of State Farm Stadium is constructed with translucent Bird-Air fabric and moves along steel rails. To achieve its movement, the retractable roof system utilizes eight cable drums or winches that move each panel. Each cable drum is powered by four 7.5-horsepower motors, which wind up a one-and-a-half-inch diameter cable. In total, a 480-horsepower system is employed to move the two roof panels and maintain control of the structure while in motion.
