After next summer (2012) there will only be one Class A high school playing football games on natural grass. Columbus Nebraska
is the latest community after Norfolk, NE (completing their project this summer) for installing a synthetic turf football playing surface.
Many field upgrade projects are minimizing built-in custom logos on the synthetic turf fields as reported in the article due to costs. The going rate, according to the article, is $20k to $25K for a custom midfield stencil and $2,100 per letter for an end zone stencil. With improved manufacturing processes and ingredients there are now more custom logo solutions in the form of permanent and removable paint as wells as aerosol and bulk chalk. Tru Mark continues to introduce solutions to solve sports field and facility managers field marking requirements.
