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!
