Sporting Arkansas Teams Up with Fairway Lawns to Revitalize Sugar Creek Soccer Park

New Partnership will add a wealth of expertise Sugar Creek Soccer Park, and also offers Fairway service discounts to Sporting AR families

BENTONVILLE (AR) – Sporting Arkansas Soccer Club will enter a new partnership with Fairway Lawns to bring professional quality turf management to Sugar Creek Soccer Park and provide club members with discounted pricing on lawn management services starting Summer 2024. 

Fairway Lawns brings a wealth of experience in professional sports field management, including Arvest Ballpark in Springdale, home of the NW Arkansas Naturals. The company also manages a number of high school and college sports fields in the region.

The comprehensive revitalization project at Sugar Creek Soccer Park aims to have match-ready pitches on all eight fields for the start of the fall 2024 season. In preparation for extensive turf improvements, the facility will be closed to all activity beginning May 25. Sporting Arkansas’ one-of-a-kind summer training program, Berraco, will move to a separate location for the 2024 session.

Scott Marksberry, Sporting Arkansas Director of Coaching said: "Sugar Creek is an incredibly important asset to both our club and our local soccer community. We’ve hosted thousands of matches and tens of thousands of hours of practices, club programs and pickup games over the past few years. Two years ago, we decided that we could have either great fields or packed fields. We chose to pack our fields with activity for kids, and all of that wear-and-tear has caught up with us. With Fairway Lawns, we believe it will finally be possible for us to have both."

As part of the partnership, Sporting Arkansas families will enjoy discounted pricing on Fairway Lawns services, bringing professional turf care to their homes. More information on the discount will be shared with club members in the coming days. 

Greg Vetrick, Regional Vice President for Fairway Lawns said: “At Fairway Lawns, we are thrilled to partner with Sugar Creek and Sporting Arkansas to not only improve the fields but also to provide the best playing experience for local soccer.  We are excited to give additional meaning to the term ‘the beautiful game’ with lush green fields. We also look forward to offering helpful discounts to new customers in the community while serving them with our proven expert lawn care practices.”
