Chris commented, “In my opinion PrimePlay has the opportunity to be the best artificial turf on the market for soccer, hands down. No more crumb rubber spray, no more irregular ball bounces, this is great stuff. I am excited to be working with FirstForm to reverse the current artificial turf trend that speed-of-play has to be compromised. The PrimePlay turf system offers natural grass promise for trapping the ball, quick settling and impact passing. It also offers the promise of faster recovery time than conventional artificial turf. It plays as close to natural grass fields as anything I have been on.”
