Pioneering Solutions To Fight Staph, MRSA Infections in Sports Facilities and Synthetic Turf Fields
Date:6/18/2008

CLEVELAND, June 18 /PRNewswire/ -- In response to the growing number of Staph and MRSA cases in athletes, Pioneer Athletics has partnered with mPact Environmental Solutions to offer advanced antimicrobial solutions for sports facilities and synthetic turf fields.

GamePlan4Sports is an antimicrobial program designed to protect the facilities and equipment that athletes, staff and trainers use each day.

"With the GamePlan4Sports system, we now have a way to combat the microbes that can cause infection. We provide long term solutions with EPA registered products like mPale(R) Antimicrobial and mPerial(R) Disinfectant," says Doug Schattinger, President of Pioneer Athletics.
