FieldTurf CORE, The World’s First Super Fiber Off to Sprinting Start
FieldTurf CORE, the world’s first multi-layer dual-polymer fiber is taking U.S. athletics by storm.
Engineered for elite level facilities, CORE is designed to deliver a more realistic, textured, grass-like shape with optimal durability and resiliency.
“We are excited to be using the latest FieldTurf technology in Georgia State Stadium,” said Doug Justice, Senior Associate Athletic Director for the university. “Our goal was to provide the highest quality surface for our student-athletes from day one, when we open our new stadium. We are pleased to take advantage of the latest innovation from FieldTurf.”
“FieldTurf is one of the great innovators in artificial surfaces and we are pleased to continue our partnership with an industry leader,” said Pat Hobbs, Director of Intercollegiate Athletics at Rutgers University. “We are committed to providing our coaches and players with best in class facilities and this is another step in that process for all our student-athletes who compete at High Point Solutions Stadium.”
CORE rewrites the playbook for sports turf, reinvents the playing field, and redefines the player experience. In the NCAA, CORE has already been installed at Rutgers Stadium and practice field, Georgia State University, California State University, California Polytechnic State University, The College of Saint Benedict, Foothill College and Bryn Athyn College. The next generation turf has also found a home in National Sports Center Stadium in Blaine, MN, home of the Minnesota United soccer team. Additionally, it is the fiber of choice for the community field in North Logan, UT; the Jack Allen Recreation Complex in Decatur, AL; and the Patricia H. Birdsall Sports Park in Temecula, CA.
CORE’s revolution lies in surpassing the limitations of single-layer polyethylene fibers. CORE’s multi-layer technology is constructed to deliver the highest fiber performance and resiliency available on the market. CORE exceeds all other FieldTurf products.
CORE’s performance and safety is backed by multiple independent certified sources. Labosport, a global leader in sport surface certification, tested CORE using the rigorous Fiber Performance Index — which measures durability, resilience and softness. The surface emerged with Labosport’s highest-ever Fiber Performance Index score of 89. The system was tested to 200,000 cycles on the fiber wear test by Penn State’s Center for Sports Surface Research and meets FIFA Quality Pro and World Rugby certifications. Unlike imitation blended polymer fibers, CORE backs its performance with results.
CORE also features FieldTurf’s heavyweight 3-layer infill system which has showcased a significant lower incidence of injuries per recent research by Michael C. Meyers, professor in Idaho State University’s Department of Sport Science and Physical Education.
A mere two months after its official introduction, CORE is already becoming one of North America’s most popular artificial turf systems.
