Once again, Maumee Bay Turf Center played a role in laying down the turf for the Super Bowl. 

This is the fourth time in six years that the Oregon business, owned by P.J. Kapfhammer and Brad Morrison, has been involved with the Super Bowl turf.

Turf Nation, a leading manufacturer of high-quality synthetic turf surfaces, manufactured the playing surface that was used for Super Bowl LII, held February 4 at U.S. Bank Stadium in Minneapolis.

“Many vendors attempt to lay claim to the NFL’s biggest game. The surface at U.S. Bank Stadium, that was utilized for Super Bowl LII on February 4, 2018, was proudly manufactured by Turf Nation,” stated Turf Nation President Sid Nicholls. 

This is the fourth time in the last six years that a NFL Super Bowl venue has featured a surface manufactured by Turf Nation — Turf Nation previously manufactured the playing surface for the 2013, 2014 and 2017 Super Bowls at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome, MetLife Stadium and NRG Stadium respectively.

Nicholls explained, “There are many good vendors in our industry. Turf Nation has manufactured four NFL Super Bowl surfaces, which is double the amount of the other vendors combined over the last decade. Our brand’s success is based on the recognition of prominent NFL clients and that the synthetic turf systems manufactured by Turf Nation optimize player performance and maximize player safety. It does matter what you play on!”

Maumee Bay Turf, the Ohio Authorized Dealer for Turf Nation is also pleased with the success of the Turf Nation brand.

“It is an amazing time for everyone associated with Turf Nation, being our fourth NFL Super Bowl in six years,” said Morrison, President of Maumee Bay Turf Center. “We have constructed so many amazing fields in Ohio, Michigan and Indiana to be proud of. All of our customers can be proud to have selected the same manufacturer as the NFL Super Bowl, with its tremendous safety and longevity.”

Morrison says Maumee Bay Turf Center and Turf Nation “have lots to be proud of in the state of Ohio. Together, the surfacing duo takes pride in the surface at Paul Brown Stadium – Cincinnati.”
