18 Oct Artificial Turf Fields Surge In Popularity With Pro Football Teams
While some players may remain divided about whether artificial grass or natural grass is best for gameplay, owners and field managers have realized that the benefits of using a synthetic grass football field outweigh these player concerns.
In fact, by the 2020 season, even more NFL teams will be playing on artificial grass, joining the 13 that already do. Both of Los Angeles’s pro football teams, the Rams and the Chargers, will be playing in a new shared stadium equipped with a synthetic surface, anticipated to open next year.
Of the 32 NFL teams, these are currently playing on artificial turf for the 2019 season:
- Atlanta Falcons
- Buffalo Bills
- Cleveland Browns
- Dallas Cowboys
- Detroit Lions
- Houston Texans
- Indianapolis Colts
- Minnesota Vikings
- New England Patriots
- New Orleans Saints
- New York Giants
- New York Jets
- Seattle Seahawks
Both the Atlanta Falcons and Minnesota Vikings have new turf surfaces for 2019, though these are replacing already-existing synthetic grass.
So why is artificial turf becoming popular again with NFL teams, especially after the early days of AstroTurf seemed to sour so many? In part, for the same reasons that everyone from homeowners to parents to municipalities experience with artificial turf: the ease of it.
For sports fields, artificial grass is the only way to guarantee regular, unimpeded gameplay. There’s no need for extensive rain delays prohibiting play and upsetting fans, and there’s no need to close down the field to activity for resodding and rest.
And with all of that, team managers can also help players stay safer with a cushioning ground that remains consistently even, meaning no more worry about holes. Because of a drainage layer, liquids drain quickly, which means no mud — ever.
Finally, synthetic turf allows fields to be greener — literally and figuratively. You’ll never have to worry about dried out spots, but as a facility manager, you also can reduce the impact your stadium has on the environment. Turf doesn’t need watering, and it will never need to be mowed, which means an eco-friendly footprint.
