2020 Innovative Award Winners

Congratulations to Pioneer Athletics and FieldTurf our 2020 “Innovative Award” winners.

Pioneer’s ready-to-use product was built as a variation of their premium Game Day paint, specifically designed to cure faster, without rewetting the surface. After years of research, the innovation was developed as an alternative for locations with regular high humidity or seasonal cool temperatures and moisture. Noted for generating better grass health, the paint is available in standard and custom Game Day colors.

Also winning the “Innovative Award” is FieldTurf who’s expertise in football, soccer, lacrosse and rugby playing surfaces among others is known globally. Their FieldTurf Genius features revolutionary technology which allows sports field managers to monitor the number of athletes on a playing surface and the hours of use. This data is used to deliver in-depth reports on executed maintenance and usage along with sending maintenance alerts when needed. This allows sports field managers to track and monitor service via a live dashboard from their desk.

The “Innovative Awards Program” recognizes SFMA commercial company members who’ve developed a product, service, equipment or technology that substantially enhances the efficiency and effectiveness of the sports turf manager and / or makes the playing surfaces safer and / or more playable for athletes.
