When you say hand draw do you mean you actually sketch it on paper and scan it in or just use a mouse or tablet ? 

I used my mouse and the circle control on my graphics program. and then sized up to the proper scale.

Thanks, A lot of work over the past few years have gone on since I started. But I can not but also shout out @pitt6pack and @cjbpowerbomb for their work as well. Combined with others who have sent suggestions and pics to us here on the treads, has lead to the creation of the Gridiron Fields Database, a part of the Gridiron Uniform Database where all the fields have been placed for historical use and updated periodically. Go check it out. We have fields dating back to the 40's and the AAF(which has recently gone the way of the dodo). And we hope to add the USFL in as I continue to complete those fields.

Looks like new field turf going down at Ford Field. The end zones are Honolulu Blue, and the actual field is a lighter shade of green, closer to the color to the turf used in the Pontiac Silverdome.

Interesting that it looks like the endzone color is sewn in now, like Dallas or Minnesota. I'm wondering if they are going to cut out and place sections for the wordmark and logo at midfield. It seems like the trend these days, rather than painting the turf fields that aren't multipurpose.

 

Doing a little research, there are 8 sewn in turf fields of 13

Buffalo

Cincinnati

Dallas

??? Detroit ???

Indianapolis

Minnesota

NY Giants

NY Jets

 

Dallas hosts a number of college games a year, but they have a separate field turf for those games. Minnesota shares with college baseball, but that's also a separate field during the NFL off season. I believe MetLife has a separate college field turf they can roll out as well as Indianapolis, for games like the B1G championship.

 

and 5 painted on turf fields of 13

Atlanta

Houston (Midfield logo is sewn in though, not sure about endzones)

New England

New Orleans

Seattle

 

For the painted fields, Atlanta gets used often for college games, and New England and Seattle share with MLS teams.

 

Personally I like the painted fields better, because it gives more options for variety. Houston and Seattle both have multiple field styles a year, and last year Detroit had two different field styles. I always like the touch of painting the endzones red in Houston when they wear red. Seattle in 2016 even painted their endzones green to match the color rush jerseys in 2016.

I think with Detroit they are cutting in everything except the wording in the end zones and "Bubbles" in the center of the field. Ford field is used way too much for other football events. Though a field "overlay" might be used at mid field for the logo.

I agree with you. I think if this was a Lions, or NFL specific field, the inner hash marks would be sewn in also.

Here is the finished installed turf for Ford Field. Looks like everything is cut in. Except the wording in the End Zone, NFL logos on the 25 yard lines, and the mid-field logo "Bubbles"

I've got a pretty accurate version done, I just haven't uploaded it anywhere in order to post. I have the Cardinals 2019 field updated. Just got to get to the rest.

 

Looks like not all the fields will be adding the NFL 100 logo (or at least not yet anyways). The Steelers typically do not add an NFL logo to their field until the Pitt Panthers are done, so I'd expect December 1st would be the first game the NFL 100 logo appears in the endzone for the Steelers.

 

MetLife did add the NFL 100 logo to the field at the 25 yard lines, although they don't put the NFL logo there in other years, since the midfield logo is the NFL logo.

I figured yours would be better than mine. I know teams so for I have seen are... Arizona, Detroit, and MetLife (New York),. Not sure of other areas...yet. Got a lot more to check with on NFL Network. I know a couple of teams have speciality logos, Like The bears, and some traditionally do not add the logo to the field till playoffs (LA Rams possiblly) or after scocer season (Seattle, New England, LA Chargers)
