"The 2010 FIFA World Cup South Africa has offered the city of Green Point Commons the opportunity to build a multi-purpose international stadium that will be used for a variety of events after the tournament has left Cape Town's shores. " - FIFA.com

"RESI is proud to provide 'Green Solutions' as part of these world class facilities for the 2010 World Cup in South Africa" remarked Charles J. Pappas, CEO of RESI.

Netlon ATS gives the natural turf surface "memory," allowing it to spring back into shape following heavy or active use. It is resistant to ripping and tearing and can support heavy utility vehicle traffic without developing ruts.

RESI's first installation was completed in December of 2008 in the Nelson Mandela Bay Stadium in Port Elizabeth, South Africa.

Headquartered in Minneapolis, RESI (Rehbein Environmental Solutions Inc.) is a green-build environmental company that uses proprietary technology and products to design usable green spaces, such as parks or athletic fields, grass parking areas and green roofs that clean, store and re-use stormwater and other water resources.
