Each year since the inaugural World Championship in 1967 and every succeeding Super Bowls, the NFL grounds crew has called on The Toro Company for its expertise to prep the game field as well as multiple practice facilities and fan recreational areas including the NFL Experience.
"Getting ready for a Super Bowl is a complex process," says Ed Mangan, NFL Grounds Manager for the Super Bowl "The turf has to respond to the players. Keep them safe. Help their game. It also has to survive pre-game festivities and half-time performances as challenging as running a herd of elephants through the field."
"Toro has helped us answer that challenge with products and agronomic consultation," Mangan explains. "Toros expertise goes beyond having products to care for the turf to expertise that helps us predict how the turf will respond with the set of conditions at each host facility. And they've been there every year. Toro has stepped up with mowers, vehicles and equipment -- anything we needed to get ready for each Super Bowl."Super Bowl Application Form
