Inside FIH

Website // www.astroturf.com

AstroTurf® has a long history of innovation and leadership in the hockey world. It’s the brand that changed the sport. At the same time, as we celebrate AstroTurf’s 50th Anniversary, we pause to reflect on the sport that has shaped AstroTurf’s history, as well. 

Field hockey is about the work that’s put in. It’s about the coaching. It’s about dedication. It’s about leadership. It’s about speed. It’s about skill development.  It shouldn’t be about the surface.  And that’s exactly why the surface is so important.

AstroTurf is:

  • The leader and expert in hockey – it’s what we live and breathe everyday
  • A vertically integrated manufacturer – we can take a raw polymer through all phases of manufacturing, installation, and service
  • The official turf of NFHCA and USA Field Hockey
  • A producer of several FIH-Certified and FIFA-Certified systems to meet every need
  • A charter member of the Synthetic Turf Council and a member of the American Sports Builders Association
  • A fount of institutional knowledge – AstroTurf’s manufacturing facilities have been in continuous operation since 1968
  • Supplier to many Olympic, World Cup, and National Championships
