Centaur Products Inc. is very proud to have been selected to supply the Polytan synthetic turf fields for the Vancouver Whitecaps training centre and National Soccer Development Centre at the University of British Columbia. Construction began on Wolfson West Field in the Fall 2014, the first of two high-performance, FIFA 2-Star Certified synthetic turf fields.

Wolfson West Field will be a dual FIFA 2-Star and IRB Regulation 22 certified field, the highest accreditation for synthetic turf fields. Meaning the field will be approved for Internationally sanctioned matches of the highest levels. The new field will join the existing Polytan synthetic turf field at UBC’s Thunderbird Stadium as the only two fields in North America to hold dual FIFA 2-Star and IRB Certification.

The synthetic turf selected was the Polytan LigaTurf RS+ with a 25mm Poly-Shock Pad. This is the world’s highest quality synthetic turf system used by professional soccer clubs across the world, including Bayern Munich, Liverpool and many others. The Vancouver Whitecaps currently play on a Polytan turf system at BC Place. Centaur Products Inc. is very proud working with the Vancouver Whitecaps and the University of British Columbia.
