College athletics

UD stadiums replacing turf: University of Delaware Athletics is upgrading two of its most recognizable athletic fields and has chosen AstroTurf® for the makeover.

Tubby Raymond Field at Delaware Stadium, home of the UD football and men’s and women’s lacrosse teams, and Fred P. Rullo Stadium, home of the 2016 NCAA champion Blue Hen field hockey squad, are both having state-of-the-art AstroTurf surfaces installed this summer, and each venue is getting a premium turf designed for optimum performance in the sport of record.

Delaware Stadium will soon receive a playing surface made of RootZone 3D3 Blend, AstroTurf’s signature football product. This artificial turf system utilizes multiple specialized fibers including AstroTurf’s patented RootZone, a sub-layer that stabilizes infill while improving safety, playability, and durability.

Installation is already underway at Rullo Stadium, where the AstroTurf System 90 playing surface is being laid down. This premium field hockey product combines the traditional knitted nylon top cloth with a 3/8th inch Armacell pad.
