Rogers Centre To Install New Turf

In 2005, Rogers
Communications purchased the Toronto Blue Jays and the Rogers Centre, changing
the turf in the stadium to FieldTurf from AstroTurf.

 

However, due to
annoyances with the turf’s consistency (balls would bounce too high in some
spots and fall dead in others) and the high visibility of the seams made the
field look obviously fake and not visually pleasing. It also took way too long
– 40 hours – to remove and store the turf when setting up for other events.

 

So, Rogers
Communications has decided to install a newly developed kind of AstroTurf:
AstroTurf GameDay Grass 3D. Like the FieldTurf, it consists of a synthetic
grass with sand and rubber and its base.

 

It will take less
time to store for other events, leading to Rogers being able to book more
events, it is a better field for playing on and looks better for the fans
watching the game, making it a win-win-win situation.
