CASHMAN FIELD STADIUM
LAS VEGAS LIGHTS
Renovation and 24-hour Field Conversion from Soccer to Baseball
Las Vegas Lights
World Sports was hired to convert the professional Baseball field at Cashman Field Stadium to a ready-to-play professional Soccer field, and vice-versa, in 24 hours. This conversion was necessary while the Stadium transitioned from the Las Vegas 51’s Minor League Baseball Team to USL’s Las Vegas Lights Soccer Team. The work had to be carried out in less than 24 hours as there were baseball and soccer games in consecutive games. Today, the Stadium belongs solely to Las Vegas Lights.
Hillsborough County, FL
2019 – Present
World Sports was awarded a four (4) year contract to renovate 160 sports fields, including, baseball, softball, football, multi-purpose, soccer and more. As a result of our superior work, the Hillsborough County – World Sports relationship has grown throughout the contract period, with leaders from both World Sports and Hillsborough County presenting at the 2020 Florida Recreation and Parks Association conference.
Televisia – Estadio Azteca
2019 to Present
World Sports was first tasked in the capacity of Technical Advisor. After the cancellation of the Mexico City Rams v. Chiefs game in 2018, the NFL and Azteca Stadium sought out a consultant with experience in the Latin American market. A failure analysis was performed that resulted in a decision to renovate the Azteca Stadium fields by removing the “hybrid grass” system that was installed and a return to a 100% natural grass turf.
Thereafter, World Sports was retained to serve as the Project Managers, ensuring the renovation of the field, which included new drainage, irrigation, soils and turf were installed properly and to specifications. Les than seven (7) months after the project was complete, the NFL hosted the international Mexico City game, Los Angeles Chargers v. Kansas City Chiefs.
Some of the challenges facing the NFL, Azteca Stadium and World Sports are discussed in the following article, which appeared in the August 2019 issues of Sports Turf, the official magazine of the Sports Turf Managers Association.
