)-- FieldTurf is proud to announce the recent decision by The University of Texas to install FieldTurf at "The Bubble," the school’s indoor practice facility at Frank Denius Fields.
FieldTurf’s impressive fiber technology has revolutionized the industry. The Revolution fiber is the result of innovative science, engineering and technology that will provide UT with a soft, strong monofilament fiber with extraordinary durability and longevity.
"We are pleased with the FieldTurf product and know our student-athletes and team members who train on it will be well-served," said UT Men's Athletics Director DeLoss Dodds.
The Bubble is used primarily for football practice, but other men's and women's sports teams utilize it as well. School officials credit the facility as a tremendous asset that has helped the football program and other teams remain nationally competitive while providing a safe indoor environment for training.
“FieldTurf has been part of the Longhorns family for quite some time and we’re certainly proud that they continue to choose FieldTurf,” said FieldTurf President & CEO Eric Daliere. “The Texas Longhorns are a dominant force throughout the collegiate football ranks. We believe the installation of FieldTurf Revolution at The Bubble will be a great asset for UT Athletics for many years to come.”
