The fields in this 2013 video were installed in 2005 and 2006. By 2012, they needed a $55K repair:
"Bentonville High School Football Coach Barry Lunney said it is time for the artificial turf to be replaced.
“We are at a point right now where we really don’t have a choice or we may be not be able to play,” Lunney said. “I mean, that’s where we are.”
Passmore said the district had the fields evaluated in 2012. Rubber was added to the football stadium, indoor facility and softball fields at a cost of $55,000.
“We ended up having to do several thousand dollars of renovations just to try and get the fields to last a couple more years,” Passmore said. “Now we are at this point. We are having some problems with the fibers, and the seams on the fields are wore out.”
Lunney said the current condition of the field can be hazardous to those using it.
“When you start losing the fiber on top, the rubber comes out,” Lunney said. “When the rubber comes out, you lose your softness of the field, which can be a danger to anybody on it. Injuries happen on hard surfaces.” "

"McManus said the district is already looking at replacing the Burlingame High School artificial surface, which was installed only eight years ago. Normally rated at 10 to 12 years, McManus said the heavy traffic — from football to soccer to lacrosse — has worn out the carpet prematurely."
