interfloortech visits EHF office

Michael Sturm, managing director of interfloortech, AstroTurf´s representatives in Europe visited the EHF office on 14th of July. He met with R. David Balbirnie, Hon. Genral Secretary of EHF, to discuss Astroturf´s presentation at the 21st EHF General Assembly, in addition to their representation at the Rabo EuroHockey Nations Championships in Amsterdam 2009.

The European Hockey Federation (EHF) and AstroTurf, LLC. synthetic sports surfacing have entered into a sponsorship agreement which sees the turf´s position as the official supplier of synthetic field hockey pitches to the organisation. The agreement between AstroTurf and the EHF extends the organisation´s formal sponsorship, which first began in 1994.

AstroTurf´s selection by the EHF as the organisation´s official synthetic turf was a natural choice since the system is the world´s most popular field hockey surface. First offered in 1965, AstroTurf is engineered to preserve field hockey´s necessary "wet" characteristics without excessive watering, which allows the sport´s ideal playing conditions to be maintained longer with less overall water usage.
