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.

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.

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!
