Act Global Sports Advances Synthetic Turf Market in Colombia with Two New FIFA Certified Fields

Act Global Sports continues to produce superior sports surfaces around the world through product advancements and professional installation partners.

 
PRLog - Jan. 8, 2013 - AUSTIN, Texas -- Act Global Sports continues to promote superior synthetic turf sports surfaces throughout the world, most recently achieving two FIFA certified installations in Colombia.

The fields are a result of quality manufacturing of Act Global and skilled installation work of Colombian partner Pedro Sarmiento and his team. The pitches were installed at the Universidad de Antioquia in Medellín and at Sede Recreacional Florida Blanca in Bucaramanga. The fields received a two and one star certification, respectively. Both feature Act Global’s Xtreme Turf for community and professional sports use.

“We are honored to work with a trusted and talented partner that can help bring these FIFA certified fields to Colombia,” said John Baize, managing director of Act Global Sports. “We truly value the work of Pedro and his team, as more players can enjoy the long-term value of quality products and professional installations.”

The field at Universidad de Antioquia is part of one of the biggest and most important universities in Colombia. It will host local league competition matches and the university’s regional tournament, as well as training grounds for professional teams. The field is part of a larger sports facility investment by the university, which will include basketball, handball, futsal, volleyball, martial arts, gymnastics and more. Act Global’s partner will install all these surfaces, making it one of the most complete sport references in Colombia featuring the Xtreme Turf FIFA certified field.

Sede Recreacional Florida Blanca is part of the social services recreational and sport complex of Santander State. The field was funded by Comfenalco Santander, a retirement plan administrator in Colombia, to stimulate sport activities amongst its members. The field will be used by members and several amateur clubs, as well as for hosting local league matches. This complex is one of only two complexes of this kind to have a full size artificial turf field. The new pitch replaces an old natural grass, and is beside a previously installed Xtreme Turf field.

FIFA testing on both fields was performed by Labosport, and results showed excellent permeability, shock absorption and stability. As a FIFA Preferred Producer for Football Turf, Act Global’s products are engineered to meet the highest quality and performance standards. The company’s Xtreme Turf has been installed in many top-performing professional stadiums around the world.
