The field in a top line stadium is not just dirt with grass (or astro-turf) laid on top of it. It's a fairly substantial concrete floor. Buldozers would have to work pretty hard to scoop up the concrete then bury the bodies. Then you would have to pour a new concrete floor.
Within a year or two the concrete floor would start to crack and breakup since the decomposing bodies will start to compact.
