Sporturf Joins Forces with MASL Utica

Soccer is the most popular sport in the world and Sporturf takes that fact very seriously. So much so that the Major Arena Soccer League decided to collaborate with Sporturf to outfit their turf fields with Sporturf synthetic turf.  In 2018, Sporturf and Sporturf International provided the turf for the Major League Arena Soccer team the Utica Comets!

The Comets chose to outfit their field in a striking blue turf that was designed for their unique needs as a Major Arena Soccer League.

When asked about how well the field performs and the benefits Bo Jelovac, UCFC Captain had this to say, “The color of the turf is great. Having a unique playing surface reminds visiting players that this is our home field. The panels lay very flat allowing for no breaks in play due to surface.”

Sporturf Keeps You Training

It is important for athletes to remember that varying up your workout routine is key to staying motivated and continuously improving, but how do you keep it interesting when your environment limits you? You’re training on the same old surface, in poor weather and the results just aren’t there.

We all know an hour of the same monotonous reps over and over again is not something many people would run and jump out of bed for. Workouts need to be new, challenging and most of all fun! If they aren’t, Netflix and potato chips will always sound like a better alternative.

Performing agility training on synthetic turf will allow you to train in exciting and challenging new ways, making workouts something you look forward to and something that is going to provide results. With Sporturf™ supplying both indoor and outdoor synthetic turf, weather is no longer an obstacle for your fitness development.

Not only does indoor synthetic turf provide more opportunities for variety, it provides better support and is visually appealing compared to your typical concrete or rubber gym floor. Sporturf’s solid product design and available color options, make our products a must have item in gyms and CrossFit.

In the sports world we know the appropriate playing surface can make all the difference in an athlete’s performance and career. Which is why Sporturf™ is here with turf for every application. The Sporturf™ team of highly qualified sales managers strategically placed across the United States will help you select the perfect synthetic turf for you next project. We know that our turf is the most durable and highest performing product on the market. We will deliver your project on time, on required spec and within budget.

Worldwide Turf Canada Installs Their First Project in Manitoba

Recently Sporturf™ dealer Worldwide Turf Canada installed their very first project in Manitoba. Steve Halbert and his team installed the project at the Gateway Recreation Centre in Winnipeg, MB. The center consists of two year-round indoor skating rinks, two outdoor hockey rinks, one indoor soccer pitch, four mini soccer fields, three regulation soccer fields, seven ball diamonds, and two outdoor asphalt hockey pens. The Gateway Centre is a true one-stop-shop for the ultimate sports fanatic.

When they decided to update their facility with synthetic turf, they knew that the only company for the job was Sporturf and Worldwide Turf Canada.

Gateway chose Sporturf™ FastGrass AT740 and installed 14,400 square feet of the padded/non-infill turf.

AT740 has all the advantages of previous turf generations and performs even higher in wear and resistance tests. The blend of nylon and polyethylene is an almost perfect 50/50 combination. This gives you the true ball roll of a traditional field, with the softness of the new generation rubber-filled turf. The fact that there is no rubber infill makes maintenance easier and cleaner. These systems can also be portable with added Velcro seams.
