The Arizona Cardinals selected Mountain Pointe In December as a recipient of the Cards’ annual community service project to have their field re-done by the latter’s grounds crew.

The process began this week after the graduation ceremony took place at Karl Kiefer Stadium.

The project, which started with an application process, began with the removal of the old turf and top soil this week.

A new playing surface will be put in place and be ready to go next fall.

The Cardinals crew will also provide education to the Mountain Pointe grounds department and how to take care of it moving forward.

The old field had trouble holding up through the season with football and two soccer teams.
