Arena Site Feature: Madison Square Garden

As one of the largest & most well-known commercial floor covering contractor in the New York Metropolitan area, we have been very fortunate to successfully work on some of the most iconic sports arenas and venues in the world. Here’s a peek inside one of our most famous projects that plays host to some of the best events & sports teams today: Madison Square Garden.

As part of a three-year renovation of Madison Square Garden (MSG), everything from the locker rooms and back of house spaces to the suites and public areas were updated.

In April 2013, Campari America hosted their first ever American Honey Bar-sity Athletics Social Sports Program celebrity kickball game. Taking place in Times Square, we installed an American Honey branded turf where celebrities like Ryan Lochte and Donovan McNabb played an exciting game of childhood favorite sport, kickball.  Proceeds from the charity event went to the Boston Red Cross to help the victims of the Boston bombing tragedy. Below are some photos from the event and from our social media platforms.

Just five months after our Fiesta In The Square Installation, we took to Times Square again for another unique turf install. In April 2012, we installed a leveling subfloor and turf for the first ever “Broadway Bowl” hosted by Nike and the NFL.  The event helped to kick off the 2012 NFL Draft, featuring autograph signings and a game played by current and retired NFL players, celebrities, and members of the FDNY and NYPD. Some of the famous players included Mark Sanchez, Justin Tuck, Matt Ryan, Dwayne Bowe, Browning Nagle, Ronnie Lott, Jadakiss, Pooch Hall and Ace Hood. Below are some photos from the installation of the field.
