The New Commonwealth Stadium looks pretty

A KSR spy snuck in to the new Commonwealth Stadium this morning and took a few pictures of the progress for us. It looks like the turf installation is almost done:

Loving the two-tone effect. Midfield just needs the new logo:

@UKAthletics posted a few new pictures as well. From the recruiting room:

    The two-tone look is awful, I’ll enjoy having a back on my seats though

    The updates are overdue. I wish the natural playing surface would have stayed.

    The turf looks freaking awesome. Man am I excited for this season. The two tone is smooth. Long overdue to install turf and update the stadium. It will all payoff in due time.

    Looks like LSU’s, glad they didn’t mark every 5 yards. Will look nice at night under the lights too.

      I don’t like the markings every 5 yards. LSU is hard to watch with numbers every 5 yards.

    That field is going to look awesome on TV! Excited for the season to start! Much needed improvements and like already said, way over due!

    Not loving the green stripes but its fun. I do love the blue checker endzones though!

    The two tone is cool but having the fifty yard line is silly.

    Is it me or are the numbers not lined up straight? looks like a wave. It even looks like it on the endzone view

    Jiminy – I think those are just stencil’s of the numbers that are sitting on the field

    I like it! This era of UK Football gets that optics is part of the game too. Field looks good. Stadium looks good. Unis look good. Recruits look good. Future looks good. Let’s get some wins!
