Shaw Sports Turf 430Shaw Sports Turf has signed an exclusive partnership with Italgreen S.p.a. of Italy to distribute Geofill in North America.

Introduced in 2005, Geofill is a 100 per cent organic mix, comprising coconut fibres and other organic materials resistant to aging, tearing, and adverse weather conditions. Originally introduced as an infill system, the product creates a stabilized layer between the synthetic grass fibres, which fills in the system like natural grass.

“This partnership allows us to continue to differentiate Shaw Sports Turf in the synthetic turf marketplace,” said Phil Barlow, vice-president of the company’s turf and specialty markets division. “Geofill is an environmentally friendly infill system that further reinforces the positive performance attributes of natural grass in a synthetic turf field system.”

More than 500 fields around the world currently feature Geofill, including the Luzhniki Olympic Stadium in Russia, Shaktar Donetsk in Ukraine, Copiapo Stadium in Chile, and Stadio Silvio Piola (Novara FC) in Italy.
