Dirt for Monster Jam to Cover Raymond James Stadium Field

PHOTO OPPORTUNITY Who: Monster Jam

What: In preparation for two Monster Jam shows on January 22 and February 5, the Monster Jam field crew at Raymond James Stadium will begin covering the grass with over 300 truckloads of dirt. The crew will first lay a protective fabric piece over the grass, followed by a plastic cover. The mounds of dirt will be piled on top of these protective layers. Although the grass will die during the two week period that it is covered in dirt, the protective layers will keep bacteria from potentially seeping into the ground. The turf will be replaced following the last show.

When: Wednesday, January 19, 2011 – 7:00 a.m.

Where: Raymond James Stadium

How: The dirt moving process will begin in the stadium’s south parking lot off of Tampa Bay Blvd and Himes Ave at 7:00 a.m. Dirt will be dug up from the parking lot and the trucks will transport the dirt to the stadium, entering at Dock D and eventually cover the field. Once the trucks begin transporting the dirt at 10:00 a.m., they will run non-stop during daylight hours for two days.

For safety reasons, field access requires the use of a safety vest. For more information or media clearance into the stadium, please call Barbara Casey at 813-477-0974 or email at bcasey@tampasportsauthority.com.
