Colleges, recreational facilities and even some professional leagues increasingly choose synthetic turf fields over natural grass pitches for soccer. Synthetic turf consists of artificial grass blades stitched into a backing material and interspersed with black rubber beads and sand. Artificial turf solves many problems associated with natural grass turfs; however, some professional soccer players have spoken out against the use of synthetic turf.
Lower cost and less upkeep constitute some of the major reasons why your local soccer field may consider installing artificial turf. Artificial turfs don't require mowing, and they require less maintenance in some situations. However, contrary to the popular belief that artificial turfs are cheaper to maintain, the Sports Turf Managers Association, or STMA, found that the upkeep of artificial grass can be more expensive. They calculated a yearly maintenance cost of around $14,000 dollars for a natural grass field, while the cost of upkeep for an artificial turf was almost $23,000 in 2009.
Despite the upkeep costs, your club may turn a better profit on synthetic turf because it allows for more playing time. Artificial turfs allow matches to continue in all types of weather -- except thunder and lightning. Rainfall can cause clubs to postpone and even cancel matches altogether due to poor playing conditions and severe damage to natural grass fields. If your league plays on artificial turf, you won't have that problem.
