Contractors, installing the pitch's undersoil heating, are the same workers who laid the playing surfaces for the upcoming World Cup.
The work is part of the ground's £30m redevelopment which will see the stadium upgraded to an international standard with two new stands and extensive refurbishment carried out to the entire facility.
And once completed the revamped home of Linfield and Northern Ireland will have a capacity of 18,000.
Contracts manager Nick Oldfield said: "It's the same team that worked on the World Cup pitches in Brazil.
"It's a good team, a first class team and one that we need to produce a first class stadium.
"The pitch will be significantly different to what it was and comparable to that of a Premier League ground."
Foreman Bill Reynolds added: "We have just finished eight of the World Cup pitches.
"The pitches had to follow FIFA specifications, but the only difference for us is the weather."
Work on the pitch is expected to be completed by September but it won't be until October next year that the whole stadium is finished.
