Case story

MX woven pitch at Moses Brown School / Campanella Field

USA, Providence

Moses Brown had the first synthetic turf field in the United States, even predating the installation of Astro Turf at the Astro Dome where the product got its name. The school was also an early adopter of the longer pile system that was developed in the early 2000s.

Continuing their mission of early adoption, in July 2020 they jumped on board with the newest innovation in synthetic turf by selecting GreenFields woven IRONTURF (known as GreenFields MX in Europe and Asia) on a Schmitz ProPlay 23D pad. This product has been carefully chosen to cover the 78,317 sq. ft. playing area at Campanella Field which is home to Moses Brown’s Football, Soccer, Men’s Lacrosse, Women’s Lacrosse, and Field Hockey teams. With a quarter-mile track, long-jump pit, and high-jump area, it’s also an ideal training ground for track-and-field athletes.
