LaLiga dedicates a series of reports to the turf of several football fields and in February the chosen one is San Mamés. To learn the secrets of one of the competition’s most legendary and historic grass carpets, LaLiga interviewed Ángel Muñoyerro, who is responsible for maintaining the Cathedral pitch.

In the interview, the red-and-white “grassman” reveals the needs of our field, its daily care and analyzes the incidence of the stadium roof on the grass.

Ultimately, as Muñoyerro explains in the attached video, these are living plants that require photosynthesis to stay healthy.
