07 Apr Professional Sports Teams Looking To Turf in 2019 And Beyond
From football to field hockey to baseball, more and more stadiums are switching to artificial turf as a versatile playing surface. After all, artificial grass can help prevent injuries and will cut down your ongoing maintenance costs significantly, keeping players and staff happy.
The first standard in synthetic grass was Astroturf, which many players found faults with, from painful falls to carcinogenic chemicals. Thankfully, modern turf has come a long way, providing a surface that helps players, staff, and fans stay safe.
Several professional sports teams have recently announced upcoming changes from natural grass fields to turf — and it’s likely more will follow. It comes as no surprise that these teams come from locations where turf is far easier to maintain than natural sod.
Arizona’s baseball team is planning on switching playing surfaces this year, and for a good reason: Arizona’s climate and environment makes it hard, and expensive, to maintain a natural grass field.
Like Arizona, Texas can be susceptible to hot, dry weather, and artificial grass withstands this climate year-round, no matter the environment. The Rangers plan to make the change to turf in the next couple of years when they upgrade to a new stadium. With a retractable roof, artificial grass is the ideal choice for this baseball playing surface as it will always look green and fresh, even without any sun.
Los Angeles Rams & Los Angeles Chargers
California sports teams have long been paying attention to artificial grass for fields for one main reason: it nearly cuts out water usage. Whether it’s a perilously dry summer or a surprising lack of rain, Californians are acutely aware of the scarcity of water. Both of Los Angeles’s football teams are planning on making the full switch to artificial turf by 2020 when they move into their new shared stadium.
