Asphalt Green’s Upper East Side campus unveils new IRONTURF field
GreenFields USA is proud to announce the installation of its premium IRONTURFTM at Asphalt Green’s Upper East Side campus. Asphalt Green’s outdoor programs will utilize the new turf, including competitive and recreational soccer, free community sports leagues and events, flag football, and summer camp.
The new, state-of-the-art field boasts nearly 90,000 square feet of IRONTURF.
IRONTURF is constructed using patented woven technology and is unmatched for playability, durability and safety. Its industry-leading durability made it a perfect fit for Asphalt Green’s Upper East Side campus, which attracts over 2 million visits annually.
“We are thrilled for the community to experience our new, state-of-the-art turf field. The overhaul of our athletic field with IRONTURF technology elevates the levels of our competitive, recreational, and free community programs,” said Asphalt Green Executive Director Maggy Siegel. “We are proud to be at the forefront of providing the latest technology and highest safety standards in the industry.”
With this installation, which includes an upgrade to the padding underneath the turf, Asphalt Green now boasts New York City’s preeminent sports field. Asphalt Green expects the field to receive FIFA certification, making it the only arena in Manhattan with such a distinction.
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.
“IRONTURF’s durability makes it a great choice for high-traffic sports fields,” said Avery Gallaher, director of operations for GreenFields. “We’re delighted that Asphalt Green chose IRONTURF, and we know the new field will enrich the lives of many New Yorkers.”
