ARTIFICIAL FOOTBALL SURFACES
“Artificial football turf surfaces now outperforming other surface types, by a major milestone”
Football is one of the most popular sports in the world, played mainly on grass surfaces by a whole range of children, adults, athletes and sports professionals.
Even though artificial football turf surfaces are relatively a new concept to the sport, artificial turf has taken the sports industry by storm, and is in great demand for both social and professional clubs as well as training surfaces for schools also.
The performance of the surface, compared to regular grass turf has been a success due to 3 key factors:
- Lower overall maintenance costs
- Consistency of play and performance throughout the year
- An increase in surface quality and surface adoption by major manufacturers, installers and governing bodies
These factors have already seen many major sports organizations resurface to the new artificial turf with great success, some opting to install brand new sports training systems around the turf system, completely transforming the playing experience of the venue.
Artificial sports turf surfaces by Rhino-Turf are the future for any sport facility club or school when reducing long term costs, and significantly improving the sports organizations’ value, usage up-time and playing performance.
