FieldTurf partnered with Detroit Lions wide receiver, Golden Tate, for a public education campaign discussing the science and safety behind FieldTurf’s turf systems.
Tate, 28, is one of the few National Football League athletes to have played his entire career on FieldTurf. His 106 NFL games and 5,000 receiving yards has earned him a Phd in “Turfology,” the company said in a recent press release.
Since graduating High School, Golden Tate has practiced on FieldTurf at Notre Dame, played and practiced on FieldTurf with the Seahawks and now plays and practices on FieldTurf with the Lions.
In the new campaign, Tate helps FieldTurf break down the complex safety data with playful common sense observation. “Trust the science: It’s not that complicated.”
The message focuses on two important independent studies published in the American Journal of Sports Medicine concluding that FieldTurf is as safe as natural grass and competing synthetic systems, FieldTurf said. The studies also comprehensively address game related injuries and concussion safety.
