Sprinturf and Limonta Sport USA have entered into an exclusive sales and marketing agreement. This strategic partnership will allow Sprinturf to market and sell Limonta Sport USA’s proprietary Geo Turf® Systems with the patented Infill Pro Geo organic infill and thermoplastic Infill Pro TP. Sprinturf will also work with Limonta Sport USA to market and sell Limonta’s family of FIFA 2 Star and 1 Star certified field systems to owners whose projects require the FIFA standards for field quality.
“We think this exclusive agreement represents a great opportunity for both Sprinturf and Limonta Sport USA,” said Sprinturf President Webb Cook. “We continue to see a demand for alternative infills in the marketplace and we believe strongly that the Infill Pro Geo organic and the Infill Pro TP offer excellent options for our customers. The Infill Pro Geo has proven its durability over time in the lab and field, and is the only organic infill that has been certified and re-certified under FIFA’s 2 Star protocol. It is endorsed by the National Green Energy Council as a product that is 100% recyclable. It makes great sense for those facility owners whose focus is environmental sustainability and consistent field performance over time.”
Limonta Sport is one of only five companies in the world that hold FIFA’s prestigious “Preferred Producer” designation. The company has numerous FIFA 2 Star and 1 Star installations worldwide. “The ability to work with Limonta’s FIFA program will be a great benefit to Sprinturf,” Cook said. “Sprinturf has deep roots in the soccer market. The ability to offer our soccer clients a world class, FIFA certified turf system gives us a very competitive position in the marketplace.”
