The Enquirer’s Sherry Coolidge reports that the Bengals will receive a new playing field and practice field this offseason.
This news probably means a new artificial field turf for Paul Brown Stadium. The Bengals have had FieldTurf since 2004, but the stadium had a grass playing surface when the stadium opened in 2000. Problems arose with maintaining the grass playing surface then, so the Bengals will probably just replace the old FieldTurf with a new one.
The practice fields currently consist of one artificial turf field and two grass fields.
Since training camp is held at Paul Brown Stadium this year, Bengals fans will be able to get up and close to the new surfaces before the first games are played.
