Northern State University selected Act Global and Kansas Turf as the artificial grass manufacturer and installer for the campus’ new Athletic and Recreation Fields.

220,000 square feet of Act Global’s Xtreme Turf was installed at Northern State University in South Dakota to construct an unrivaled facility within the upper Midwest. The multi-field project was designed to enhance the student-athlete experience for both the football and soccer teams.

The new turf fields are part of NSU’s campus master plan to continue to evolve into a modern institution that fulfills the needs of its students. Act Global’s turf was selected for the project due to the brand’s reputation for safety and presence within several NFL stadiums. Northern State was attracted to the proven benefits of Act Global’s turf technology to minimize fatigue-related injuries for its athletes. The execution of installing the new football, soccer, and auxiliary field was completed by Act Global’s partner and industry expert, Kansas Turf.

“It was a great experience working on this project with the Act Global team to create multiple playing surfaces that will allow for safe and high-quality training opportunities for the Northern State University athletic program.” – Jake Farrant, Kansas Turf Owner.

The new Athletic and Recreation Fields have garnered positive attention within the school and its athletic community from the coaches and athletes excited to utilize the facility.
