In 1999 the University of Nebraska–Lincoln installed FieldTurf in Memorial Stadium. In 2006, Nebraska installed new FieldTurf that alternates between two shades of green every five yards. Texas Tech University installed FieldTurf in Jones AT&T Stadium. Nevada installed FieldTurf at its Mackay Stadium in 2000. The playing surface had been natural grass for 34 seasons.

FieldTurf was installed at Qwest Field (originally Seahawks Stadium) in 2002.[1] The original plans called for a natural grass field at the new stadium, but due to the favorable reactions from players while playing at Husky Stadium, the Seahawks had FieldTurf installed instead.[2]

On Tuesday, April 29, 2003, the Georgia World Congress Center Authority announced that it had selected FieldTurf as the new surface for the Georgia Dome, replacing the AstroTurf surface in use at the Dome since its inception in 1992.[3]

Washington State University installed FieldTurf at its Martin Stadium in 2000. The University of Oregon installed NexTurf in Autzen Stadium in 2001 but the surface did not perform as expected and during remodeling in 2002 it was removed and replaced with FieldTurf. The University of Utah installed FieldTurf in 2002 and replaced it in 2009. Colorado State installed FieldTurf at its Hughes Stadium in 2006. The playing surface had been natural grass for 38 seasons.

The New England Patriots installed FieldTurf midway into the 2006 NFL season.[4] The installation was made during a week when the team was on the road.

In 2004, Rutgers Stadium in Piscataway, New Jersey installed FieldTurf where the Rutgers Scarlet Knights football team plays. In 2007, the Saskatchewan Roughriders, a Canadian Football League (CFL) team, installed FieldTurf in Mosaic Stadium at Taylor Field. In April 2008, FieldTurf was installed at the new baseball stadium of Calvert Hall High School in Towson, Maryland, designed by Baltimore Orioles baseball great Cal Ripken.[5]
