BALTIMORE – UMBC Athletics is currently installing a new turf surface at UMBC Stadium, with the project scheduled for completion in early August.
King Sports Construction is the contractor for the project, which will utilize Field Turf Revolution system. Coupled with FieldTurf’s patented heavy three-layer infill system and state-of-the-art SureLock coating method, the FieldTurf Revolution turf system has been designed to be the very best synthetic turf system with unparalleled player safety and turf drainage rates.
The surface will feature in-laid lines for lacrosse and the Retriever logo in the center of the field, while soccer lines will be painted on the surface. Retriever Soccer Park, which features a Bermuda grass surface, serves as the soccer program’s primary field, but the UMBC Stadium field may be used in poor weather conditions.
Moreover, King Sports will also install a new backstop netting system at UMBC Stadium.
The upgrade replaces Sportexe’s Momentum 51 synthetic turf, which was set up in the spring of 2005.
