Testimonials

“Moving to turf was not an easy decision for us and came with a great deal of research. We wanted a surface that would bring harmony to both the offensive and defensive components of the game. AstroTurf’s product allowed us the best opportunity to do this without compromising any aspect of our field.”

Head Baseball Coach Tim Corbin,
Vanderbilt University

“Our players, coaches and staff have been extremely satisfied with our AstroTurf fields at the Sherman Smith Center. When it came time to replace the turf at Boone Pickens Stadium, we decided to stick with AstroTurf.”

Athletics Director Mike Holder,
Oklahoma State

“The turf plays beautiful and without a doubt it is the nicest turf I have ever been on. The bounce and the roll of the ball is like playing on a well-manicured grass field… The decision to use AstroTurf for our new stadium is the best decision we made for our new 8 million dollar complex.”

Men’s Head Soccer Coach Bob Gray,
Marshall University

“AstroTurf is the preferred surface of our sport for a reason. Their turf has the speed and consistency you just can’t find in other surfaces.”

New Stadium has South Dakota State Jacked for Football

Brookings, SD, September 21 – The iconic blue and yellow checkerboard end zones shine even brighter when the South Dakota State Jackrabbits kick off on their new home field. Dana J. Dykhouse Stadium opened this fall, and the new home of the Jackrabbits features a stunning new AstroTurf® playing field. Installation of the 100,000 square foot surface is complete, and the Jackrabbits won their home opener on the new AstroTurf surface.  The field can be seen in a recent SDSU video showcasing some of the AstroTurf installation.

The cutting edge football field that SDSU is playing on is the AstroTurf 3D3 synthetic turf system, an innovative design that utilizes three distinct fibers for exceptional performance. For long-lasting aesthetics, AstroTurf 3D3 uses the High Micron monofilament fiber, which contributes to the field’s ability to stand upright over time. For durability, AstroTurf adds in slit film polyethylene fibers. And finally there is the RootZone, a patented and proprietary sub-layer of texturized fibers that holds the sand and rubber infill in place, preventing compaction, splash, and migration. The result is a striking new playing surface that has received high marks for performance, durability, and safety.

“The AstroTurf surfaces we have recently installed in both the Sanford-Jackrabbit Athletic Complex and the new Dana J. Dykhouse Stadium have been a big part as to why we now have one of the premier football complexes in the nation,” said South Dakota State Director of Athletics Justin Sell. “Using innovative products that include soy-based materials, we have been able to make new connections that tie into our mission as a land-grant institution.”

Dana J. Dykhouse Stadium replaces the Jackrabbits’ old home, Coughlin-Alumni Stadium. In addition to a premium synthetic turf field, the new stadium boasts increased capacity and several more modern amenities such as hospitality suites. The $65 million project opened its doors to the public on September 8th with the “Jacks Bash” featuring country music superstar Luke Bryan. South Dakota State won its September 10th home opener against Drake.

Mid-America Sports Construction, a certified AstroTurf distributor, has been handling all necessary site work and surfacing of the new field. Dana J. Dykhouse Stadium becomes the second AstroTurf playing surface on the South Dakota State campus, joining the Sanford-Jackrabbit Athletic Complex.

New Field at Lawrence Technological University is on Point

Southfield, MI, September 19, 2016 – Lawrence Technological University is in the midst of a major athletic facility upgrade, and they’re starting from the ground up. LTU Athletic Field now features a cutting edge playing surface from AstroTurf®, the originators of the synthetic turf industry. Installation of the artificial turf field, located on a part of campus known as the Point, was completed in mid-August and opened for competition last week.

The new field has been lined for use by football, soccer and lacrosse, and it features over 88,000 square feet of the AstroTurf 3DX synthetic turf system. The 3DX product is composed of slit film fibers for maximum durability, sand and rubber infill, and AstroTurf’s patented RootZone® technology. The RootZone utilizes texturized fibers to stabilize the infill and increase shock absorbency, improving the field’s safety and playability. The result is a high performance athletic surface that can handle heavy usage.

“This AstroTurf field is the first phase of many improvements to our athletics facilities,” said LTU Athletic Director Scott Trudeau. “Many of our students will be impacted by the addition of this multipurpose field on our campus.  We will have three soccer teams and two lacrosse teams immediately benefit from not having to travel for games and practices. We will also be able to utilize it for our many intramural programs like flag football, soccer, and ultimate frisbee not to mention the numerous teams that will utilize it for conditioning purposes.  It is great to see how far we have come since 2011 when we got into the National Association of Intercollegiate Athletics.”

The new and improved LTU Athletic Field was officially inaugurated when men’s soccer hosted Taylor University in the team’s home opener on August 24th, a 1-0 win for LTU. To date the Men’s and Women’s teams are both undefeated at home.  The Blue Devils compete in the Wolverine-Hoosier Athletic Conference of the NAIA. AstroTurf was selected as the official synthetic turf of the NAIA back in March, with NAIA President Jim Carr citing the company’s innovative products, commitment to excellence and their safe and durable fields.

The new field is part of a more comprehensive renovation project aimed at improving the athletic facilities on that part of campus known as “The Point.” Phase 1 includes the new turf, fencing and increased parking capacity. Phases 2 and 3 will include adding lights for nighttime activities, permanent stands and other spectator amenities.
