New England Patriots choose IRONTURF for Empower Field House
GeoSurfaces North East is honored to announce that five-time Super Bowl champion, the New England Patriots, and Major League Soccer’s New England Revolution will now practice on IRONTURFTM, at the Empower Field House. IRONTURF is manufactured in the United States by Greenfields USA. The just-completed field is approximately 80,000 square feet and is lined for both football and soccer.
This project is the culmination of a successful trial installation of IRONTURF done in 2017. After testing for more than a year, IRONTURF was selected for the Empower Field House installation.
“We compared IRONTURF with other turf products and after a thorough review process, we decided on IRONTURF for its real grass feel and durability,” said Jon Bengtson, for the New England Patriots and New England Revolution.
Since its introduction in 2017, IRONTURF is quickly becoming the turf of choice for the country’s most demanding sports venues, with recent installations at Charlotte Motor Speedway and a MLS soccer complex for Sporting Kansas City.
GeoSurfaces, an exclusive distribution partner of GreenFields USA, has completed several other installations of IRONTURF, including a football field at the University of Arkansas – Pine Bluff, a softball field at Baylor University in Waco, TX and a baseball field at Pearl River Community College in Poplarville, Mississippi.
GeoSurfaces’ Vice President of Operations, John Huard, Jr. commented, “The New England Patriots and New England Revolution need a reliable and high-quality playing surface to prepare for their games. IRONTURF’s top-of-the-line synthetic fibers combined with the patented weaving technology are perfect for that job. We’re honored to have the New England Patriots and the New England Revolution practicing on IRONTURF.”
