Official release, Montreal - The Montreal Alouettes will play their upcoming game at Olympic Stadium on a brand new Montreal-designed playing field, the XLTurf Pro.
Developed by Polyprod Inc. under the T.E.A.M. Sports Surfaces banner, the XLTurf Pro product line features a patented absorbent padding that lowers the risk of injury throughout a game.
Established in Montreal in 2003, Polyprod Inc is currently the only company in the world manufacturing lightweight portable artificial turf systems.
The surface was bought by the Quebec Soccer Federation for the FIFA U-20 World Championship, but was not used during the tournament. The Alouettes, who have played on AstroTurf at Olympic Stadium for the last two years, will be the first team to use this new field.
The Alouettes host the Toronto Argonauts and their cheerleaders on Als’ Fan Day, Saturday, Oct. 20 at 3 p.m. at Olympic Stadium.
Its about time. The stuff they have been using for the last couple of years seemed awful
