The University of Alabama Million Dollar Band will soon get access to its newly renovated practice field, which could easily be mistaken for a field Nick Saban's football team might use.

Butler Field, which sits catty-corner from Sewell-Thomas Stadium between University Boulevard and Paul W. Bryant Drive, will soon feature a full-size, artificial turf football field that is even painted to reflect the look inside Bryant-Denny Stadium on gamedays.

The project began earlier this year as part of a plan to improve the band's practice area, which was an unlevel grass field prone to holding water after heavy rains. The project also includes a parking four-story parking deck that will go up in place of the adjacent commuter lot.

Here's how the field used to look:

Now, take a look at an aerial photo recently taken by Todd Media and posted to their Facebook page and you'll see the dramatic improvement. Keep in mind that this is a field built strictly for the band and you'll get a clear picture out how committed The University of Alabama is to be successful in every arena.

The practice field is expected to be open sometime in July.
