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.

Silverback™ Quiet Strength Made to Last for McChord Air Force Base

The McChord Air Force Base chose turf that was built to withstand the strength of the air Force, they chose a turf made to last. When they decided to use Sporturf™, they chose a company whose values mirror their own. Sporturf™ is the epitome of integrity, service and quality; easily demonstrated by our superior Silverback™ technology.

Silverback™ is the result of our specialty Polyurethane backing recipe. Silverback™ coating saturates the primary backing of the synthetic turf and effectively locks the turf blades in place. While most polyurethane backings are a coating simply scraped over the primary backing, Silverback™ actually penetrates into the tuft, surrounding every stitch locking the fibers into the primary backing. This process produces tuft lock well above the industry standard.

The components that make up Silverback™ are simple. It is, at its core, a heat activated polyurethane with zero vegetable based polyols, forming the best polyurethane backing available in today’s market. When you have Silverback™ as your backing you know you have the quiet strength required by today’s consumers, regardless of the application.

Snoop Dogg Gets Game Ready at the College Football Hall of Fame

Back in January the College Football Hall of Fame had a visitor with his own right to fame. Snoop Dogg, American singer-songwriter and actor visited Atlanta’s College Football Hall of Fame for an exclusive screening of his TV series, “Snoop & Son: A Dad’s Dream.” The series focuses on Snoop’s relationship with his son Cordell Broadus while Cordell decides which college he will play football for.

While there, Snoop spent a few hours touring the 94,256 square foot facility, featuring historic memorabilia, interactive multimedia displays and a 45 yard replica football field that was provided exclusively by Sporturf™. After Snoop spent some time throwing passes and kicking field goals he had this to say, “This is the greatest thing ever…Number one in my book!”

FastGrass™ AT740 gives the Milwaukee Wave a true home field advantage

The Milwaukee Wave took the field for the season opener on December 6th against the St. Louis Ambush on a brand new state of the art Sporturf FastGrass AT740 turf system.  And if that wasn’t enough, team officials made the decision to purchase an all black field to promote the recent team logo and color change giving the Wave a unique home field advantage!

The old abrasive “carpet style” turf was recently removed and crews from Sporturf descended upon the 12,700 seat UW Milwaukee Panther Arena to install the top of the line surface for the team.  The players will no longer need to fear a slide tackle thanks to the skin friendly polyethylene grass blades and the non-infill padded turf will allow the players the ability perform like never before.  The 5mm foam pad will provide the athletes with a soft cushion without compromising ball roll and ball bounce.

To say that we at Sporturf are excited to bring another Major Arena Soccer League (MASL) team into our family is a grave understatement.  We’re proud to partner with the best!
