Good morning, 12s.
Here's a look at what's 'out there' for today – Thursday, June 27 – about your Seattle Seahawks:
New Season, New Turf
Whether it be four quarters of a football game or 90 minutes of a soccer match, plenty of high-paced activity takes place throughout the year on the turf of CenturyLink Field. The time has come in which the Seahawks and First & Goal Inc. completed the installation of some wonderful new turf. The new surface of FieldTurf Revolution 360 replaced the existing FieldTurf, which was installed in 2016.
The Seahawks and FieldTurf share a long-lasting relationship, as the team has technically been playing on the company's turf since 2000, back when the Seahawks played at the University of Washington's Alaska Airlines Field at Husky Stadium. The partnership continued at CenturyLink Field and at both the Virginia Mason Athletic Center and the Sounders FC training facility.
"FieldTurf has been a great partner for years and continues to set the standard in turf technology," said David Young, Seahawks Senior VP of Business Operations and General Manager of CenturyLink Field. "It is imperative that we continue to provide the best playing surface for both the Seahawks and Sounders FC and we are proud to work with FieldTurf once again."
Not only were the Seahawks the first team in the NFL to play their home games on FieldTurf, but CenturyLink Field is one of four stadiums in the League to utilize FieldTurf. Eric Daliere, President of the organization, said that "FieldTurf is thrilled to continue our long-standing relationship with the Seahawks and Sounders FC. We share a commitment to player safety and it is a testimony to the quality of our products that such prestigious organizations continue to put their trust in our company."
