Appalachian State Soccer is Raving Over Their New AstroTurf Field

BOONE, N.C. – During a summer of soccer featuring the FIFA Women’s World Cup and CONACAF Gold Cup, AstroTurf has scored a hat trick of its own. Appalachian State University men’s and women’s soccer programs, in a joint venture with the Watauga Parks and Recreation...

AstroTurf and the University at Buffalo Team Up on a Game Changing Facility

Buffalo, NY – Many inside the University at Buffalo athletics department have called the opening of the Murchie Family Fieldhouse a real game changer for the university. Two years in the making, the facility provides the athletic program with the luxury of being able to practice indoors on campus during the winter months while also helping with recruiting future Bulls.

Named in honor of former Buffalo hockey player Tunney Murchie and his family, the facility features a full AstroTurf football field with two goalposts, four motorized suspended softball hitting tunnels and two multi-level indoor filming/viewing towers at 24 and 36-feet high.

The centerpiece of the new facility is AstroTurf’s RootZone 3D3 Blend turf system. This premium product is AstroTurf’s most popular stadium turf due to its combination of long-lasting performance and game day good looks. The RootZone 3D3 Blend integrates three unique fibers – the slit film, monofilament, and patented RootZone – into one cohesive system.

Along with the 74,958 square feet of AstroTurf, the facility also includes 6,000 square feet of Rekortan track for sprints, hurdles and jumps. The Rekortan G-13 track was installed by ATT Sports Inc, a certified Rekortan Distributor. Rekortan is a sister company of AstroTurf under the SportGroup brand.

The fieldhouse will be available to every varsity athletic team, house university events, expand student recreation programming and used for intramurals.
The $18 million facility has over 4 million cubic feet of indoor space and is situated just beyond the north end zone of UB Stadium.

“This is a tremendous game-changer,” said Athletic Director Mark Alnutt.  “It’s important to dispel the notion that this is a football-only facility. It’s a facility for athletics and recreation. Alumni Arena is busting at the seams and this gives us another opportunity to spread the wealth and have a facility where, when those winters come about and teams need to get a practice in, they don’t have to commute to another indoor facility somewhere else. This is something that benefits the entire Division of Athletics, which includes athletics and recreation.”

“It’s a very exciting time for us to get a fieldhouse,” said football head coach Lance Leipold. “This has been a topic of conversation for 15 to 20 years and to finally have this opportunity to provide our student-athletes with an off season place where they can work on their skills is tremendous. It’s going to benefit the whole athletic department, whether it be in a practice setting, a strength-and-conditioning session or student-athletes working out on their own. The new facility and AstroTurf field is going to benefit each team in very unique ways.”

Track and field head coach Vicki Mitchell said her team is very excited to have the new facility. “For us, as a cross country and track-and-field program, the benefits and impacts are going to be enormous. Our student-athletes are going to have the ability to train inside on a good user-friendly surface. We’ll be able to do field-event work that has previously been limited in the winter time. It’s going to open up a whole new opportunity to develop as a team.”

Buffalo plays in Division I and is a member of the Mid-American Conference (MAC) in all sports. The Bulls have been a member of the MAC since 1998.

Polytan is working to provide an unprecedented flexibility and visibility for elite hockey matches

Polytan, like AstroTurf, is a division of SportGroup, the world’s largest business dedicated to sports surfaces.  At The Stoop Rugby Stadium in London, Polytan will install the Poligras Tokyo GT system on top of a natural grass surface on a temporary basis. With as little as a one-week turnaround, this innovative move will enable international hockey matches to be played in large existing stadiums and could enhance the profile and visibility of the sport itself. Poligras Tokyo GT is the sugar-cane based field hockey surface that will be used at the 2020 Tokyo Olympics and will only be available from AstroTurf in the United States.

Fresno State University Teams Up with AstroTurf

Fresno, CA – Fresno State has selected AstroTurf® to be the synthetic turf provider for Jim Sweeney Field at Bulldog Stadium.  By choosing AstroTurf®, Fresno State has teamed up with a hometown turf partner as AstroTurf Corporation’s west coast operations are located in Fresno, CA.  This relationship will result in AstroTurf® providing FSU with the most technologically advanced synthetic turf system available.

The field itself is AstroTurf’s most popular stadium turf due to its combination of long-lasting performance and game day good looks.  The RootZone 3D3 system results in minimal infill splash and better shock absorbency, while improving safety, playability and durability. Also included in the system is Trionic®, AstroTurf’s patented new wonder-fiber.  Trionic® is a blend of polyethylene and nylon fibers that is quickly revolutionizing the synthetic turf industry.

This premium is system will be topped off with a hybrid Hemp EPDM and Zeolite infill that reduces field temperatures substantially. The cutting edge, cooler system was the right choice to combat the extreme and punishing heat of the Fresno Valley.

“We put a lot of thought into what we wanted out of our new field at Bulldog Stadium,” said Terry Tumey, Fresno State Athletic Director.  “We looked at every aspect of what was needed out of a new surface from a standpoint of performance, safety, aesthetics, and durability. AstroTurf checked all of the boxes for us and we are confident that we made the right choice for our student-athletes and our program.”

AstroTurf’s sales team has established some incredible momentum in the Fresno Valley, converting customers to innovative, industry-leading technology that meets their needs with unsurpassed value.  The new field at Fresno State will serve as a crown jewel in AstroTurf’s own backyard for their west coast regional office.  Installation of the field will be handled by authorized AstroTurf distributor, Valley Precision Grading of Rancho Cordova, California.

“We are so honored that Fresno State chose AstroTurf over all of the other turf companies that they considered, as well as over their current turf provider,” said Dominick Berarducci, AstroTurf Regional Sales Manager.  “They were very decisive about everything they wanted and we are excited that we could meet their needs with our top-of-the-line synthetic turf system. This field is truly going to be a thing of beauty.”

AstroTurf Sales Manager Cameron Worrell added, “For me, this installation is very special. Being a former player for Fresno State, I have many great memories of playing in Bulldog stadium. To be involved in improving the playing surface for this program that I love really means a lot to me.”

The Bulldogs will begin this season trying to continue the tremendous success of the previous two years. Head Coach Jeff Tedford is entering his third season as coach of the Bulldogs with a 22-6 record and back to back Mountain West conference championships. The home opener for Fresno State will be on September 7th against the Minnesota Golden Gophers.
