Interesting Field Designs

Recommended Posts

We all know about the uniforms and the logos, but what people tend to forget are the designs on the field itself, so after finding some material I decided that we should have a thread dedicated to this.

 

First up, we have the often mentioned Jaguars Santa Hat used in December for a couple years in the early 2000's

Then we have the Chargers having pumpkins on the 20 yard line for Halloween in 2004:

The Buccaneers apparently went with this festive Christmas design in 1991:

The Patriots decided to get weird in 1981:

That's all I got for now but feel free to post Baseball and Soccer stuff too. Anything that has grass in general works I guess.

The Twins always had a marked circle around home plate and paths to the dugouts during their days at Metropolitan Stadium.  I don't remember seeing anything like that anywhere else.

 

Handy arrows in case you got lost on your way to the batter's box.  :P

I always enjoyed the Raiders' use of their shield around the field numerals in the 60s/70s.

That would look awesome if the diamonds/stars were just a darker green instead of silver and red...

I wanna say the 49ers had a Santa hat on the end of the wordmark in the end zone this year. It was hard to see with red writing though. And yes, too lazy to look it up and way too stupid to attach a picture

I am still in the search for the years the Chicago Bears put a Santa hat on the C with the Bear inside of it logo.  If I remember, they did this in the late 80s.

During the '04-'05 lockout, the NHL experimented with light blue ice in the Sabres' arena. It never even saw preseason action, unfortunately.

^ Kinda looks reminiscent of NHL '94. :) I kinda like it.

 I remember it in the early 90s. I too have looked for a picture of it. No luck.

I believe it’s actually an artificial surface as of an upgrade a few years ago.

I always thought CIncinnati's endzones were unique. Rather than a diamond pattern, or white slashes, or the common 'name or city spelled out with or without a color background', the Bengals had a tiger stripe pattern.

 

And I can't find it, but I swear after baseball season ended at Riverfront Stadium, that there were games where it was just stripes. No words. But everything i find is more recent with BENGALS written across the stripes. Anyone know if I'm just misremembering or if the Bengals really did have patterened endzones with no writing at one point at Riverfront?

The only time I recall just striped end zones was the early years of Paul Brown Stadium
