Eden Park launches new TORO Turf Cam allowing fans to watch venue transformation

Eden Park launches new TORO Turf Cam allowing fans to watch venue transformation
November 20, 2020

Auckland’s Eden Park has launched their new TORO Turf Cam fans from across the globe to watch their Turf Team transform and maintain the world-class surface, look in on skill sessions and witness live performances with special guest appearances.

TORO creates an array of turf maintenance machinery and products which have been used to maintain Eden Park as well as some of the world’s famed grounds including Wimbledon, Walt Disney Resort, NFL Superbowl, University of Notre Dame, and St Andrews.

Eden Park launched the TORO Turf Cam following the world’s largest crowd attendance at the Bledisloe Cup since the onset of a global pandemic with Eden Park Chief Executive Nick Sautner noting “this year, more than ever, people are seeking out new live experiences and ways we can continue to come together as a community. Australia’s Phillip Island Nature Parks had viewers glued to their screens during the COVID-19 lockdown when they livestreamed their penguin parade to the world.

“Eden Park’s TORO Turf Cam will allow fans from all corners of the globe to watch our Turf Team transform and maintain our world-class surface, look in on skill sessions, witness live performances with special guest appearances and get an insight into the weekly hustle and bustle of the country’s largest stadium. We anticipate the live feed will offer fans of the Park a moment of zen during this challenging moment in world history.”

Official TORO distributor Parkland Products know their customers have high standards and want the best possible results.

Parkland Managing Director, Chris Todd advised “we take great pride in having our world-class products and services help Eden Park maintain its reputation as an iconic venue.”

With the summer of cricket fast approaching, the transformation of the hallowed turf from rugby to cricket is scheduled this weekend and will be broadcast live on the TORO Turf Cam for enthusiasts to watch.

All eyes will be on the stadium’s Turf Team this Sunday when they manoeuvre the pitch transporter onto the ground following tomorrow’s Mitre 10 Cup semi-final. This will see them remove the sand tray utilised for rugby fixtures, bring down the goal posts and install the drop-in cricket pitch ready for next Friday’s T20 between the BLACKCAPS and West Indies.

The feed will be unavailable for games

The TORO Turf Cam will be live from 8am on Sunday 22nd November at edenpark.co.nz/turfcam/
