Offering student-athletes a state-of-the-art playing surface for Field Hockey was Missouri States number one priority when selecting the new field hockey pitch. Missouri State selected the Sporturf™ FIH71 product. The high performance durable surface is the same style the 2014 World Cup Field Hockey matches are played on.
Head Field Hockey coach Gabby Gomez Sosa stated “This provides us with the right tools to recruit, everyone worked very hard to make this a reality” Sosa went on to say “We will see immediate changes in our performance”
Missouri State will be looking to host many Field Hockey events for tournaments and regional events throughout the year. “The surface is unique” added Darby McCamy, Sporturf Business Director. “The field is designed to be played on wet which makes the speed of play exceptionally fast but still providing excellent ball control. This is one of the elite surfaces for Field Hockey in the United States and we are proud to be part of such a great program”
The project was installed by Sporturf Midwest
