FOXBOROUGH, Mass., Jan. 17, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- GeoSurfaces North East is honored to announce that five-time Super Bowl champion the New England Patriots will now practice on IRONTURFTM, at 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, as Major League Soccer's New England Revolution, will also practice on the field.
This project is the culmination of a successful trial installation of IRONTURF done in 2017 at the Gillette Stadium complex. After testing IRONTURF for more than a year alongside several other brands, the Patriots' staff chose to go with the revolutionary woven turf product.
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 need a reliable, high-quality playing experience so they can focus on polishing plays and cranking out those Super Bowl wins. 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."
