LIVE: FieldTurf Installation at Mercedes-Benz Stadium
FieldTurf will be the official playing surface for the new Mercedes-Benz Stadium when that facility opens. FieldTurf --- the turf of choice for most NFL and MLS teams and the world leader in artificial surfacing --- announced it will be the official playing surface at Mercedes-Benz Stadium as well as at the indoor practice field at the Atlanta Falcons’ training complex in Flowery Branch, GA. FieldTurf will also provide the playing surfaces at the Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta Training Ground, Atlanta United’s new training facility.

The latest FieldTurf technologies will be featured at the various Atlanta Falcons and Atlanta United installations:
- All of the aforementioned installations will be FieldTurf’s Revolution 360 surface, the company’s absolute top-of-the-line product. Revolution 360 is FieldTurf’s latest monofilament fiber and is the industry’s new standard. It is quickly becoming the most popular surface in North America and is already in use at many of the nation’s top facilities including Providence Park, home to MLS’s Portland Timbers, as well as CenturyLink Field, the home of the NFL’s Seattle Seahawks and MLS’s Seattle Sounders.
- FieldTurf’s innovative pad system, known as VersaTile will be installed at Mercedes-Benz Stadium and on three Atlanta United turf training fields. VersaTile not only provides exceptional performance for the athlete with respect to shock attenuation and player comfort, but also provides unmatched drainage properties.
- FieldTurf’s performance-proven cooling system, CoolPlay, has been installed on over 100 fields across the U.S. and has also been installed on the three Atlanta United turf training fields. CoolPlay is laboratory-tested and proven to reduce surface temperature by up to 35 degrees compared to traditional turf systems.
