The Sodfather: George Thoma speaks about the groundskeeping for Super Bowl LVIII in Las Vegas

George Toma has been curating the Super Bowl grass field for fifty-seven years, and this year was no different. At 94 years of age he was determined to make it the best field yet. He and his team have been working tirelessly to make sure the field is perfect and as safe as possible for the athletes during their championship weekend.

The cost of this year’s field was a staggering $800,000 compared to the $700-800 budget he had to work with during Super Bowl I, but George was determined to make it worth every penny. We asked George about the upcoming Super Bowl LVIII being held in 2024 in Las Vegas at Allegiant Stadium, an event that he swears he won’t be around for any longer, and he assured us that Travis Hogan would take great care of the upcoming season.

Travis is currently in his second year as the Head Groundskeeper for the Kansas City Chiefs and will be leading the charge for the Super Bowl LVIII field, a job that starts officially on Monday following the big game in Arizona.
