Limonta Sport Chosen as FIFA Preferred Producer
World Governing Body of Soccer Once Again Raises the Benchmark for Synthetic Turf
NEW YORK, Jan. 29 /CSRwire/ - The world demand for safe, high quality turf fields has increased dramatically over the last several decades as a result of the growing enthusiasm for organized sports. On the world stage, no sport has united this enthusiasm more than soccer, and since 1981 no company has fostered this passion more than LIMONTA SPORT.
In 2001, the FIFA Quality Concept for Football (Soccer) Turf was launched. FIFA Certification Programs known as FIFA Recommended Installations, provided benchmarks for quality and performance as synthetic turf was gaining in popularity. A good synthetic turf system offers durability and practicality almost on a full time basis, as opposed to natural turf requiring high maintenance; chemicals, fertilizers and excessive amounts of water to maintain a reasonable consistency for sports. Recently, FIFA introduced the FIFA Preferred Producer Initiative, now raising the bar in recognition of the synthetic turf producers that have proven to consistently strive for the highest quality systems through research, testing, manufacturing, installation, and maintenance procedures. Limonta Sport has been doing this since 1981 and was selected by FIFA as one of only five, chosen from more than 150 synthetic turf producers and 25 FIFA Quality Concept licensees worldwide.
Even among this select group, Limonta Sport leads the way toward a healthier, safer and environmentally responsible future for athletes worldwide. When environmental and safety concerns gripped the conscience of Europe in the last decade with the proliferation of SBR, or crumb rubber from car tires, used for the infill between the synthetic turf blades. Communities and nations alike began to question its use in synthetic turf. Limonta Sport took this initiative to research and developed a safe, organic alternative that would offer even greater performance than the traditional system.
