Gillette Stadium officials announced that they are upgrading their field surface and the New England Patriots and the New England Revolution have selected FieldTurf’s Revolution turf system and VersaTile drainage and shock underlayment for its unparalleled player safety and extraordinary durability. The installation of the FieldTurf Revolution and VersaTile has begun and will be completed and ready for use for the Revolution’s next home match on April 12. The FieldTurf Revolution product is currently used at many venues across North America, including CenturyLink Field (home to the NFL’s Seattle Seahawks and MLS’s Seattle Sounders) and Providence Park, home of the MLS’s Portland Timbers, where its installation was recently completed. FieldTurf was initially installed at Gillette Stadium in November of 2006, which marked the first in-season grass-to-turf conversion in National Football League history. Since then, Gillette Stadium has utilized FieldTurf products exclusively and the Patriots have enjoyed unprecedented success at home with a league-leading .870 winning percentage (60-9). The FieldTurf surfaces have also served as the home field for the New England Revolution and UMass Minutemen football while also allowing the flexibility to host numerous international soccer matches, full-stadium concerts, MIAA high school championship games and dozens of other stadium events and activities on the playing surface.
