Pioneer Athletics announced today that the nine locations and surfaces on which it partnered for the 2008-2009 bowl season reached MVP levels. All nine games saw most valued partnerships between Pioneer and the local crew that delivered HD-quality, national broadcast level field-marking, with support from Pioneer paints, stripers, stencils and groomers.

“Pioneer product results were visible all over the country – from California to Florida, from Michigan to Texas,” noted Pioneer President/CEO Doug Schattinger. “Crews worked indoors and outside, on synthetic turf and natural grass, and with high humidity and low humidity. In every situation they turned out fantastic performances. Pioneer is grateful for their partnership and hard work in making these events so strong.”

commented Chris Fiore of Pioneer Athletics. “That is no time for lackluster performance, and these crews were instrumental in delivering a perfect field-marking performance.”
