Mercedes-Benz Superdome Again Selects Act Global Synthetic Turf

The premier New Orleans stadium to receive the leading artificial grass technology from the American-based manufacturer for the 2018 season.

Following a strong 2017 season, the SMG-managed Mer­cedes-Benz Superdome in New Orleans has chosen Act Global for the second-consecutive year as the manufacturer and installer for turf. The new field will be installed in late July before the New Orleans Saints’ first game against the Atlanta Falcons.

Due to its iconic nature and high demand, the Superdome is one of the most heavily used sport, concert and event venues in the nation. For this reason, it is also one of the only stadiums to install a new artificial grass system each year, as it requires non-grass floor space between football seasons. Act Global supplies superiorly-engineered turf systems created to advance player safety and performance. After exceptional feedback both internally and externally regarding the quality and appearance of the field, Act Global was announced as the preferred artificial grass provider this year as well.

“Act Global is honored to be selected again as the playing surface for a number of important NFL and NCAA games. We are thrilled to work with such a wonderful team at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome and SMG. They have a passion for creating the best game experience possible for the players and fans, and we appreciate the great feedback concerning our turf quality and performance. We are committed to continue providing the best support and turf experience possible,” comments Act Global CEO, John Baize.

Last year’s synthetic turf field was relocated to a public high school in Meriden, Kansas as part of a donation project through KTX Sports Construction’s Project 340.
