Graco LineLazer™ IV 5900 at Wembley Stadium
To get the best result when spray painting logos on a sports field, spray the logo on ‘high’ grass, then mow the grass.
The Wembley Stadium in London, England, is one of the most famous stadiums in the world. With 90,000 seats the stadium has the second largest capacity in Europe, and is the largest stadium in the world with every seat covered. The arena is the home of the English National Football team and also plays host to many other major sporting events and international pop concerts.
Wembley Stadium hosted The American NFL game between the New Orleans Saints and the San Diego Chargers. This was a sell-out crowd of over 80,000 people and broadcast to a TV audience of millions.
Playing a limited number of regular-season games outside the United States helps build and grow an already passionate international fan base. This is a positive step in the effort to globalise American football.
In preparation for the big match, all the lines and logos on the pitch were spray painted with 2 Graco LineLazers using 7 different colours of paint. A team of specialist applicators were flown in from the United States, specifically for this application.
To get the best result when spray painting logos on a sports field, spray the logo on ‘high’ grass, then mow the grass, so that the colours of the club's logo become more visible to the eye.
For the record, New Orleans held off a late ‘throw of the dice’ from San Diego to take their record to 4-4 that season with a high-scoring victory at the second 'International Series' match at Wembley Stadium.
