Any company can claim to offer safe turf products. However, when it comes to proven safety for your children and athletes, there is only one company that stands beyond all – FieldTurf.
FieldTurf offers the safest artificial turf system available today.
While no sport can ever be completely injury-free, we continue to find new ways to reduce the risk and severity of injuries. Our focus on safety has led to numerous injury-reducing innovations and improvements. As a result, we have the products and experience to help you provide the safest playing field possible for your athletes.
The findings of a long-term testing program show that FieldTurf is safer than any other synthetic turf system and equal to – if not better than – natural grass in most critical areas of player safety.
An independent, three-year study of competitive college football showed that when compared to natural grass the FieldTurf system leads to:
|13% Fewer Muscle Strains / Tears||11% Fewer Concussions|
|31% Fewer Ligament Tears||24% less High Ankle Sprains|
|21% Fewer Severe Injuries||23% Fewer Injuries on 4-8+ Year Old Surface|
An independent, five-year safety study of competitive high school football showed that when compared to natural grass the FieldTurf system leads to:
- 44% Fewer Concussion Injuries Combined
- 43 % Fewer ACL Injuries Combined
- 25% Less Time Lost to Long-Term Injuries (Lasting 22+ Days)
- 16% Less Time Lost to Short-Term Injuries (Lasting 1-2 Days)
An independent, four-year safety study of NFL ACL Injuries concluded that FieldTurf is safer than or as safe as natural grass and competing systems.
ACL Injury Rate per Team Games Played
- .048 FieldTurf
- .050 Natural Grass
- .053 Competing Turf Systems
An independent, six-year Men's Collegiate Soccer Study concluded that FieldTurf is safer than or as safe as natural grass and competing systems. Showed that when compared to natural grass the FieldTurf system leads to:
- 25% Fewer Total Injuries
- 20% Fewer Severe Injuries
- 33% Fewer Concussions
- 15% Fewer Injuries due to player-to-surface collisions

A Woman's Collegiate Soccer Study concluded less severe and total injuries occurred on FieldTurf compared to Natural Grass.
In regards to incidence of injury:
- 22% Fewer Total Injuries
- 7% Fewer Substantial Injuries
- 2% Fewer Severe Injuries
In regards to head and knee trauma:
- 12% Fewer Concussions
- 18% Lower ACL and Associated Tissue Trauma Combined

A seven-year study of competitive high school football found that as the artificial infill surface weight decreased, the incidence of game-related high school football trauma significantly increased across numerous playing conditions.
Compared to all other infill weight surfaces, systems with or greater than 9.2 pounds of infill per square foot led to:
- Almost one third lower incidence of Total Injuries (19%-29%)
- Almost half the incidence of Substantial/Second-Degree Injuries (35 –55%)
- Nearly one quarter lower incidence of Severe/Third-Degree Injuries (19%-26%)
- One-third lower incidence of Player-to-Turf (Impact with Surface) Injuries (32%-47%)
- Nearly one quarter to one-third lower incidence of injury on New Field Surfaces (21%-37%)
- One-third lower incidence of Diagnostic/Surgical procedures ordered following play (25%-36%)
- Over half lower incidence of injury on Fields Aged 8+ years (58%-63%) compared to fields with 0 to 5.9 pounds per square foot of infill
