TurfsUp extends a sincere Thank You to Foxboro Youth Soccer Association for their generous $ 10,000 contributions towards the effort to build Foxboro's first turf field.

"We are pleased to support TurfsUp with this $10,000 donation," said FYSA President Larry Mello. "Proceeds from our Memorial Day Foxboro Cup Tournament have enabled us to contribute to bringing a turf field to Foxboro. We serve approximately 800 kids on 73 different teams. Needless to say, we struggle finding field space for that many teams. A turf field is essential to the growth of our program. It will provide much needed additional space, allow us to maintain fields, and provide a better and safer surface on which to play. We urge the entire community to support this effort".

TurfsUp continues to look to organizations, families, businesses and individuals to help this community project. Please visit to see who is helping.
