Honduras - The Honduras football federation is one of the latest international customers to reap the benefits of a COVERMASTER® product for their sports field.
The National Autonomous Federation of Football of Honduras, or FENAFUTH, is the official governing body for football in the Central American country. When they decided to purchase football field covers for their national team — winners of the Central American Cup in 2017 — the organization contacted COVERMASTER® to source the new equipment.
FENAFUTH required a product that would protect the pitch from heavy rain and keep the turf cooler and drier in the tropical climate. RAINCOVER ULTRA™ turned out to be the field cover of choice with four sections totaling about 88,000 square feet (8,175m2) arriving in the country this month. They also purchased four TARPMATE AIR™ rollers, an inflatable roller that allows the football tarps to be installed or removed in just minutes.
The dual-sided football field tarp has a silver side to minimize heat. RAINCOVER ULTRA™ is the industry’s strongest core raincover, allowing hundreds of pounds of water to be removed from its surface. It’s also the lightest, weighing over 200 lbs. (90kg) less than other available field tarps, and making it easier and less time-consuming to handle.
"As the rain poured on the COVERMASTER® RAINCOVER ULTRA™ in the field of the Olympic Stadium of San Pedro Sula, I thought of all the people that worked behind the scenes for the acquisition of this product. Although we worked together from a distance,we were immensely satisfied by the service you provided. It is amazing how people from around the world can connect to provide a top notch product.
To our friends at COVERMASTER®, it was a pleasure working with you.”
