August 17th 2021Progress Continues On Massive Upgrades To Sanford Sports ComplexBack to ListSioux Falls, SD.-- Dirt work is in progress and base construction on the baseball fields is underway at Sanford Sports Complex, currently one of the largest active artificial turf project in the U.S. When finished in summer 2022, the project will add 18 new outdoor artificial turf fields, including five softball fields, five baseball fields, and eight multi-use fields on 173 acres. General contractor Mammoth Sports Construction is installing FieldTurf brand artificial turf. Mammoth is an official FieldTurf partner. “With hundreds of thousands of new visitors that will come from all over the country to play in tournaments and programs, the upgrades to the Sanford complex are going to be a game-changer for the Sioux Falls community,” said Jake Farrant, president of Mammoth Sports Construction. “We are honored to provide top-quality installation work that’s going to have such a positive economic impact for the area.” The installation of FieldTurf instead of natural grass will help reduce rainouts and time lost. It will also reduce the need for field maintenance and be accessible year-round. “There’s no doubt the venue will quickly become one of the most recognized in the country,” said Eric Daliere, President of Tarkett North America & Tarkett Sports,. “We’re proud to provide the best synthetic turf in the world to contribute to the success of the Sanford Sports Complex.” Mammoth Sports Construction recently established a Sioux Falls location and hired dozens of local construction workers, with plans to hire more.
