Summer is in full swing in Texas, but here at Act Global’s corporate office, we’re dreaming of the fall. Along with cooler weather, the start of September is synonymous with the start of football season. For Texans, high school, college, and pro football game days are each equally important and sacred. Every level of competition is taken seriously because we care about the growth of the game and the development of athletes. At Act Global, this mentality is evident through our artificial grass fields that aid in better gameplay for athletes of all ages.
Here in our home state, the University of Houston Cougars are getting ready to begin training for their 73rd season. With just 64 days until the team’s first game and 71 days until the team’s first game at home, the Cougars have a long 2 months to get the team competition ready and new players inducted into the team’s family. Due to NCAA regulation limiting preseason teams to just 29 practices before gameday, the Cougars are expected to open fall training camp in late July. The #HTownTakeover hosts practices at its training facility, which includes a full-sized synthetic turf field with a system that is identical to the team’s stadium surface. The Houston Cougars value quality and consistency with their sports fields which is why the Speed artificial grass system was selected by the team. As the ultimate Ground Gear for athletes, the Speed series provides a research and testing-backed sports surface that is uniform from Houston’s practice to stadium field.
The Speed-S5 turf system is the preferred by many college and professional football teams and is now manufactured by Act Global.
Good luck to the Cougars on their 2018 season!
