In March 2011, Fieldturf (the self-proclaimed World Leader in Artificial Turf) filed a major lawsuit against its largest supplier - Royal TenCate based in Holland. See link here: http://www.scribd.com/doc/50114371/Fieldturf-TenCate-lawsuit and the TenCate answer and counterclaims can be downloaded here: https://anonfiles.com/file/2b156219169fed216c281dd9f7082044
A recent Opinion and Order in the case is here: http://docs.justia.com/cases/federal/district-courts/georgia/gandce/4:2011cv00050/173174/395/
By their own admission (see pg 31 of the May 10 2013 Opinion and Order above) at least 167 Fieldturf fields have failed because the synthetic grass fiber has degraded prematurely. Between 2005 and 2010 Fieldturf installed many times that number of synthetic turf fields in the United States. Dozens of fields throughout the country may be failing prematurely without the customers knowledge.
In many cases, customers with defective Fieldturf fields have had their fields replaced under warranty at no cost. See these examples for instance:
