Charleston Southern University installs new AstroTurf football field

The Charleston Southern University (CSU) Buccaneers will be playing on a new AstroTurf football field.

The school’s athletic program worked closely with AstroTurf to ensure the new installation was completed in time for the 20th Big South Conference season.

“We are extremely pleased with the installation of our new turf,” said Jeff Barber, director of athletics at Charleston Southern. “The entire process, from the very beginning to the end, was run as smoothly and efficiently as it possibly could have been. I greatly appreciated the communication between our department and AstroTurf as we navigated through all the steps.”

CSU chose one of AstroTurf’s most competitive products for the project, the RootZone 3D3 Trionic Blend 60. A leading-edge turf system, RootZone 3D3 fields feature texturized layer of fibers that hold down the infill. This special RootZone layer serves to minimize infill migration.

In addition to boosting playability, the new field also got an aesthetic upgrade. The athletic department’s updated logo – the three-color Bucky head – is at mid-field. The end zones got a refresh with a bold navy background and the Buccaneers wordmark. To comply with the new NCAA legislation passed in the spring, CSU also chose to extend the gold and navy coaching boxes to the 20-yard line.

“Now that the installation is complete and usage has begun, we have received nothing but great reviews from our players and fans,” added Barber.
