"I have seen a lot of these fields in Europe. After years of intensive use they still look as good as in the beginning."
Dan Almond, Sports Field Designer

Only the best is good enough for Oklahoma State University

When an alumnus was dissatisfied with the field at Oklahoma State University in the T. Boone Pickens Stadium, people listen. Especially if the person concerned is T. Boone Pickens himself.

State-of-the-art sports facilities for American university

After the stadium was named after him, the legendary oil-magnate T. Boone Pickens wanted to invest in the renovation of the stadium. He only had 1 condition for the field: "only the best is good enough". With his monumental gift, which was the largest ever received by a university athletic department, the stadium was turned into a state-of-the-art facility with a roaring home-field and an unrivalled athletic village. Facilities include a large fitness hall with weight room and sports medicine center.

Durable synthetic turf field

Dan Almond, a renowned architect and former student at Oklahoma State University, was given the job. He chose Desso artificial turf: "This artificial grass is undoubtedly the best of the best. I am overjoyed that my alma mater Oklahoma State University is one of the first in the United States to install this quality artificial grass. It is just more like natural grass, plays more like natural grass and maintains the same quality for years. I have seen a lot of these fields in Europe. After years of intensive use they still look as good as in the beginning."
