    Same OLD Turf at New Era Field

    The Bills announced last year that they were replacing the artificial surface at New Era Field for the 2019 season. The turf for the last 8 years has been a locally manufactured product call A-Turf Titan from Williamsville NY.

    Buffalo is the ONLY NFL venue using that turf and it was rated #29 by SI in regards to player acceptance and safety. Current clients using A-Turf are Niagara Falls HS, UB Stadium and St. Bonaventure.

    Guess what - - - - - - The same turf with rubber pellets is back!!!!![/B]

    A-Turf will be completing the turf playing surface replacement at New Era Field just in time for the NFL season. In the meantime, Terry & Kim Pegula (team owners) and Bills players are celebrating the opening of a brand-new, world-class, 41,000 s.f. Sports Performance Center. It seamlessly links the club’s athletic training, strength and conditioning, and sports science departments. A-Turf installed a turf area for warm-up, post-workout, and flexibility work.

    Any comments?

    All the new next gen turfs that ended the flat carpet concrete style and switched to the more fake grass fiber stems style that started with the stuff they put in Seattle, have rubber pellets.

    I assume this new install at New Era will be the next gen version of the A-Turf Titan type.
