Theoretically, you can walk on sod after it has been in place for a week or so, however that wouldn't include normal use or heavy use such as by a crowd or a kids' game of football. Before laying the sod you will have to do some extensive soil preparation,preferably allowing some time for it to settle and be rained on so you can get the fine grading done just right. You would also want to check the supplier's warranty conditions on the sod. (Sod is expensive.) Sadly, I am not too optimistic.
