University of Arkansas – Pine Bluff reveals new IRONTURF football field
GreenFields USA is proud to announce the completed installation of its premium woven turf product, IRONTURFTM, at the University of Arkansas – Pine Bluff. UAPB’s Simmons Field is IRONTURF’s first NCAA Division 1 installation.
IRONTURF is constructed using patented woven technology and is unmatched for playability, durability and safety. Simmons Field covers over 90,000 square feet and was made possible through a gift from Simmons Bank.
“Providing our players with a world-class football facility means they can play their best game,” said Robert Wall, facilities manager at University of Arkansas – Pine Bluff. “IRONTURF’s high-quality form and function made it the perfect choice for us.”
The installation was completed by Louisiana-based GreenFields partner Geo-Surfaces.
“When designing athletic fields for our clients, we select the best products tailored to their needs,” said Charles Dawson, founder and CEO of Geo-Surfaces. ”IRONTURF is perfect for high-impact sports like football, and it looks top of the line, as well.”
Avery Gallaher, director of operations for GreenFields, noted that the product’s first NCAA Division 1 installation was a major milestone.
“We’re big college football fans, and we’re proud to see the Golden Lions playing on an IRONTURF field,” Gallaher said. “We hope they enjoy its superior playability for years to come.”
IRONTURF is quickly becoming the turf of choice for the country’s toughest sports, with recent installations at Charlotte Motor Speedway, Real Salt Lake’s soccer complex and more.
