Why should you use artificial turf?
Because it is convenient
You need a lot of water and fertilizer to keep the grass growing on a football field during the whole year. This will impact both your budget and the environment. Consider the thousands of gallons of water you might need to use every day to properly maintain a football field. There are for sure other better ways to spend the same amount of money and resources. Even the fertilizer can be extremely expensive and is not exactly the most environmental-friendly option to play the sport you love.
Because it lasts for a long time
Once you buy a new artificial turf for your football field you will not have to replace it for more than 5 years. On the other hand, a grass football field needs to be maintained on a regular basis. It is going to last not for more than 2 years even in the best scenarios without the effects of wear and tear. A grass football field can be ruined by weekly practices, games, and poor weather conditions. You can save a lot of money with a modern artificial turf field. Your wallet will thank you.
Because its injury rate is now lower
Thanks to the most recent improvements and technology, the more modern artificial turfs used nowadays have a much lower injury rate than the first generation of the same material. Besides, it has been proven a greater incidence on grass of injuries that kept players off the field for more than a few days.
