July 31st 2020How New Jersey Became The FieldTurf Capital of AmericaBack to ListDespite being the country’s 5th smallest state, New Jersey showcases over 750 of FieldTurf’s 6500 U.S. installations. Combined, the artificial turf fields would span over 60,000,000 sq.ft, enough to surface all of Central Park, twice!FieldTurf is the trusted choice at all levels and all sports across the state.

When it comes to what we recommend and deliver to our field owners, FieldTurf and I share the same key core values. We truly care about the client and that’s why I think we’ve been so successful over the past two decades. Several schools are installing their 3rd FieldTurf surface with us. That really showcases the trust and quality experience they’re having with us.” Said Perry DiPiazza, Regional Vice-President of Sales. DiPiazza has proudly represented FieldTurf in New Jersey since 1997 and is now assisted by his Son, Bobby DiPiazza. Even faced with the additional challenges of 2020, this year has been another successful one for FieldTurf in New Jersey. New surfaces have already been installed at MetLife Stadium, Bergen Catholic, Fairleigh Dickinson University and more, along with a newly awarded project at the Township of Middletown which will cover over 200,000 sq.ft.A growing trend in the area over the last five years has been the choice of FieldTurf’s cooling infill technology, CoolPlay. The system is laboratory-tested and proven to reduce surface temperature by up to 35 degrees compared to traditional turf systems.FieldTurf isn’t only a leader in New Jersey, across the country, we have been the surface of choice for over 20 years.
