Retractable Playing Field  

State Farm Stadium's retractable playing field is an engineering marvel. This single tray of natural grass, spanning 234 feet wide and 403 feet long, moves effortlessly on 546 steel wheels along 13 tracks. In just 70 minutes, it glides in or out of the stadium, offering a seamless transition for various events. Crafted from Tifway 419 grass, it replicates the feel of traditional turf and enjoys ample sun exposure when parked outside, ensuring optimal conditions. This remarkable versatility makes it a standout feature in the sports venue landscape.



Retractable Roof  

The retractable roof at State Farm Stadium is a feat of engineering. Crafted from translucent Bird-Air fabric, it glides effortlessly along steel rails. Eight cable drums power each panel, driven by four 7.5-horsepower motors that wind up sturdy cables. This 480-horsepower system controls the movement of the roof panels with precision, ensuring smooth operation and structural stability while in motion.
