FieldTurf Named 'Official Turf of the American Football Coaches Association'

FieldTurf, the world leader in artificial turf, and the American Football Coaches Association are proud to announce a new partnership. Through 2020, FieldTurf will be the “Official Turf of AFCA”.

FieldTurf will also be a presenting sponsor of the AFCA Tailgate Party, a popular annual event held in conjunction with college football’s National Championship Game.

"As one of the leaders in the industry, we are excited to partner with FieldTurf as the Official Turf of the AFCA. Because of our longstanding relationship, they recognize the value of our association, our members, and their impact on young lives."

Todd Berry, Executive Director, AFCA

The AFCA, nearly 100 years old, is the only national organization dedicated to providing ongoing education, interaction and networking for football coaches at the high school, junior college, international, semi-professional and pro levels.

“We have been longtime supporters of the American Football Coaches Association,” said FieldTurf President Eric Daliere. “We pride ourselves on delivering innovative and high-quality surfaces and we’re proud to contribute to the development of the great sport of football alongside the AFCA.”

AFCA’s 2018 Convention will be held in Charlotte, N.C., from Jan. 7-10.


Manufactured in Calhoun, Ga., FieldTurf is the most trusted name in artificial turf with over 5,000 installations in the United States and 7,500 worldwide.

FieldTurf is the trusted surface of Gillette Stadium, home of the Patriots & Revolution; CenturyLink Field, home of the Seahawks & Sounders; Mercedes-Benz Stadium, home of the Falcons & Atlanta United; Lucas Oil Stadium, home of the Colts; Ford Field, home of the Lions; hundreds of NCAA Division I powerhouse programs such as Notre Dame, Ohio State, Oregon, Michigan, Texas, Washington and thousands of elite high schools nationwide.


The AFCA was founded in 1922 and currently has more than 11,000 members around the world ranging from the high school level to the professional ranks. According to its constitution, the AFCA was formed, in part, to “maintain the highest possible standards in football and in the coaching profession” and to “provide a forum for the discussion and study of all matters pertaining to football.”
