Sports Field Holdings Completes First Installation of its PrimePlay Replicated Grass System® and TerraSport™ Infill in the Los Angeles Unified School District

May 1, 2019

At the Birmingham Community Charter High School In Van Nuys, California

ST. CHARLES, Ill., May 01, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Sports Field Holdings, Inc. (the “Company” or “Sports Field”) (OTCQB: SFHI), through its wholly owned subsidiary FIRSTFORM®, Inc. (“FirstForm”), today announced the completion of its first installation project in the Los Angeles Unified School System; the second largest school system in the United States. The Company installed its PrimePlay Replicated Grass system and its environmentally friendly TerraSport infill at the football stadium for the Birmingham Community Charter High School in Van Nuys, California. Included in the project was the resurfacing of the school’s running track.

Sports Field’s CEO, Jeromy Olson, commented, “This is a major milestone for our company as our first project in California, and our first opportunity with the Los Angeles Unified School District (LAUSD). The Birmingham project has been extremely well received by LAUSD, the second largest school district in the country. We are currently submitting the required documentation to be approved as a preferred vendor for the district. Preferred status should make the FIRSTFORM product available to the entire Los Angeles Unified School District. The demand for our products is high in California due to the need to significantly reduce water usage to maintain athletic fields, our environmentally friendly infill, TerraSport™, which eliminates the carcinogenic compounds associated with traditional crumb rubber infill, and the student-athlete safety characteristics of our PrimePlay Replicated Grass® system.”

“The business opportunity represented by LAUSD is the largest we have seen to date,” continued Mr. Olson. “The completion of the Birmingham Charter High School athletic complex should create significant new opportunities. With many of the more than 900 schools within the district moving from grass fields to synthetic turf at a rapid pace, the district spends tens of millions of dollars on turf and track systems every year. Our PrimePlay® Systems fit perfectly within district guidelines. We are excited about the future. California and the Los Angeles Unified School District represent a major opportunity for our Company as we enter one of the largest markets in the United States.”

Birmingham Community Charter High School is a part of the Los Angeles Unified School District, located in the heart of the San Fernando Valley, in northwest Los Angeles.
