Worldwide Turf Canada Begins Preparations at McChord Air Force Base

The beginning stages of the installation process are underway at McChord Air Force Base. Steve Halbert and the team at Worldwide Turf (Canada) Inc. have begun building the drainage layer, spreading the stone and creating the aggregate base that is required under the fields. Friday they will be laying the center line panel on the first field.

Incredible aerial shot of the beginning work on the field installations. 

The aggregate drainage base is the first and arguably the most important step in the installation process. The turf will lay directly on the compacted aggregate base and allow water permeability, which is a great advantage synthetic turf has over natural grass…No rainouts, EVER!

Once the compacted aggregate base is completed, the installation of the turf will begin! Stay tuned for updates on this exciting project for Sporturf™ and Worldwide Turf (Canada) Inc.

SporTurf Sponsors Mexican National Team

Sporturf™ had the honor of being the official sponsor of the Mexican National Team in the World Minifootball Arena Soccer World Cup this past week; hosted by the Chicago Mustangs, members of the Major Arena Soccer League (www.MASLSoccer.com), at the Sears Centre Arena in Hoffman Estates, IL.

Rene Ortiz, who has coached the Mexican National team since 2002, had this to say about artificial fields, “Discomfort is when turf is thin like 1/2 inch or so … when it is properly laid, stretched and attached to the ground, the field is excellent to play.”

The final game of the World Cup came down to Mexico vs. the US who were both undefeated entering the match. USNAST beat Mexico 5-3 despite a valiant effort, to take home the WMF World Cup. Eduardo Velez had this to say about the US win, “Their goalie was unbelievable, he was making incredible saves!” Despite coming up short in the finals, Mexico won all of their previous matches in the tournament and Sporturf™ is certainly proud to have had the honor to sponsor such a talented team.
