Maryland SoccerPlex, in conjunction with Campey Turf Care Systems (United Kingdom) and GreenOne Industries(Colorado), is hosting a Demonstration Day as part of the SoccerPlex Stadium field renovation. The renovation, starting Monday August 27, is utilizing several unique pieces of equipment from Campey’s distribution out of the UK:

–          KORO Field Topmaker (2.5 meter)-  “Fraze mow” ¼” of field to removal of up to 2” of field

–          KORO by Imants Recycling Dresser (1.9 meter)-  Deep de-compaction machine that also generates topdressing for the field

–          Raycam SpeedDresser 18–  Topdresser to put down 2” of sand at 4 mph

–          Imants Shockwave–  “Soil wave” deep de-compaction

SoccerPlex Stadium, a sand-based field reinforced with “turf grids” is being re-established from seed and will open October 9th.  The renovation is similar to a process performed on major fields and competition areas across Europe include:

–           Real Madrid

–          All England Lawn Tennis Club (Wimbledon).

Along with highlighting the machines, Jerad Minnick (Director of Grounds for SoccerPlex) will share about the renovation process
