SCG Fields Installs Multipurpose Soccer and Football Field in North Miami

Recently SCG Fields, LLC worked with North Miami Athletics to install a Sporturf™ multipurpose soccer and football field in Miami, Florida.  Officials from North Miami Athletics worked the SCG and Sporturf team to choose a color for the coaches’ boxes that would very closely match the newly resurfaced track.

The turf system that was selected consisted of Sporturf™ GameChanger paired with an alternative infill called Envirofill from US Greentech and a ProPlay shock pad from Schmitz Foam Products.  The entire project was purchased through our partnership with NJPA.

SCG Fields, LLC is a sports field specialty construction contractor that handles all phases of natural and synthetic turf jobs for professional, collegiate, and high school facilities, from excavation and sub base through installation and maintenance. They are one of the nation’s most trusted sources for superior quality construction of highly engineered natural grass and synthetic turf sports fields.  Sporturf is proud to team with top quality partners across North America for both indoor and outdoor projects. 

Sporturf™ GameChanger is very similar to natural grass; our advanced yarn provides resilience and strength at the same time, while maintaining a brilliant appearance. The fiber has exceptional split resistance compared to conventional turf fibers. This increases the performance in sliding, ball roll, ball bounce and durability making our product one of the best on the market today.

Grants Pass All-Sports Park Soccer Field

Sporturf™ dealer Dale Collett of Synthetic Turf Consulting installed this soccer field for Grants Pass High School in Grants Pass, OR in 2017.  Dale and his crew utilized over 100,000 square feet of PowerHouse synthetic turf to complete this project, including prefabricated lines.

In the United States, Soccer is one of the most rapidly growing sports and around the world it is by far the most popular sport surpassing basketball and football. This is where the need for synthetic turf becomes paramount. Natural grass fields simply cannot withstand the constant play.

Sporturf has the ability to provide a FIFA quality product and our quality standards translate to a winning surface. We bring a complete solution to you and your team through comprehensive evaluation and understanding your needs.

PowerHouse, the turf installed on the field, is one of our most advanced system designs that provides high resilience and increased comfort and safety. The series is made up of some of the most proven and durable fibers in the world. PowerHouse truly is a workhorse and will withstand the rigors of wear and tear for many years.

PLAYRITE Installs Sporturf™ at Bob Leonard Park

The project began on May 2nd and completed on July 1st and it was a really smooth installation from the base preparation to the installation of the turf.

The Bob Leonard Park project was a public bid. PLAYRITE had previously built another soccer field in the same park for the Town of Farragut in 2013 so the staff knew about the company and their quality of work really well.  They appreciated PLAYRITE’s quality of work and product so much that PLAYRITE won the project despite the fact that they were not the lowest bid.

To the inexperienced eye it probably does not look like it takes very much to install synthetic turf. We are here to tell you that is simply not true. Take a look at the project progression and we think you will be amazed at the amount of work that goes into a field.

The Futbol Factory Has Fast Grass!

The Futbol Factory, LLC installed Sporturf ™ Fast Grass AT755E in their indoor training facility. They knew they needed a quality product that could withstand the abuse that futbol (aka soccer) players put it through. The Futbol Factory chose Sporturf ™ due to the well know quality, fair pricing and exceptional customer service.

When asked about how the turf is holding up, Juan Carlos of The Futbol Factory said, “The turf is great, we and the players love it.” According to Juan, some of the most common comments on the field are, “That it looks beautiful, that is great that it has no rubber and is comfortable to play on it.”
The benefits of Sporturf™ AT755E include high resistance to wear and the fact that messy infill is not required. The almost perfect 50/50 blend of nylon and polyethylene provides a true ball roll generally only found in high pile rubber infilled turf. Also, no rubber means less maintenance.

Keep in mind, all Fast Grass systems can be outfitted with Velcro seams for ease of portability.

Peru State is a Powerhouse

The football field at Peru State College was first installed in 2013 as a part of a $9 million stadium upgrade project. After researching several turf options, the school chose Sporturf™ Powerhouse 44oz, with 2.25” pile height. Even after a few years of constant use by the Peru State football team the turf looks phenomenal. So if you were concerned that a football team would tear up your brand new field in the first season then you are sorely mistaken. You can clearly see that our Powerhouse product can withstand whatever a team can throw at it.

Designed with durability in mind, PowerHouse also provides increased comfort and durability thanks to the extensive research and development that went into it.  PowerHouse truly is a workhorse and will withstand the rigors of wear and tear for many years.

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.

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!
