Texas Tech to install synthetic turf at Jones AT&T Stadium
The Texas Tech University Red Raiders announced that the Matrix Helix synthetic turf system is being installed by Hellas. Installation at Jones AT&T Stadium is part of a stadium expansion project.
This is the same synthetic Matrix Helix turf used by 11 NFL teams, including on game day by the Dallas Cowboys, Tennessee Titans, Houston Texans, Los Angeles Rams and Los Angeles Chargers.
“More and more college teams are investigating making the switch to Matrix Helix turf for a better turf system,” said Reed J. Seaton, president and CEO of Hellas.
“We’re thankful for the support of the board of regents as we continue to invest in the future of Jones AT&T Stadium,” said Texas Tech director of athletics Kirby Hocutt. “The timing of the south end zone and Womble Football Center project made this an ideal opportunity for us to look at all areas of Jones AT&T Stadium to see where other needed improvements could be made. We’re excited to partner with Hellas on this project.”
Added Head Coach Joey McGuire, “This new turf from Hellas is widely used throughout the NFL and college football, and will be a great addition to what we are already building at Jones AT&T Stadium. We look forward to debuting this new surface in front of a packed crowd when we host Oregon on September 9.”
