Beşiktaş, Istanbul - Beşiktaş J.K. in Instanbul, Turkey is one of the Big Three sports clubs in Turkey and one of the most successful teams in the country. Its football team has won 21 league titles including 16 Turkish Süper Lig, three Turkish National Division, and two Turkish Football Championship titles. It plays at the multi-purpose, 42,590-seat Beşiktaş Stadium which has had many accolades for its design and use of technology. But like any outdoor stadium without a roof, it’s open to rainy and snowy weather.

Football season starts in August and runs through to May. In order to protect their football turf in inclement weather, Beşiktaş J.K. must use football field covers. Recently, they ordered seven sections of COVERMASTER® RAINCOVER ULTRA™ measuring 51 feet wide by 237 feet long – all custom-cut for use in their stadium. These lightweight field covers feature the strongest core in the industry able to handle hundreds of pounds of water during removal from the football turf.

Ordered in Silver/Black, RAINCOVER ULTRA™ will reduce heat build-up (Silver side up) or draw heat into the field (Black side up) during colder conditions. Featuring COVERMASTER® exclusive SHIELD-TEK™ coating technology, the football turf is also kept cooler and drier. To quickly install and remove these field covers, Beşiktaş J.K. also ordered seven COVERMASTER® TARPMATE AIR™ ROLLERS which only require two people per roller and are easily inflated with standard backpack leaf blowers. Now, neither rain nor sleet nor snow will affect the football turf at Beşiktaş Stadium.
