Asphalt Green to Unveil New Field Named After the Late Leonard Litwin of Glenwood Management
Asphalt Green will host event commemorating Litwin Field at their Upper East Side campus
New York, NY – August 25, 2019 – Asphalt Green will present its 90,000 sq. ft. state-of-the-art turf field on its Upper East Side campus at a community event, named after Glenwood Management’s Leonard Litwin in honor of his legacy and the late developer’s 40 year patronage of the organization and his dedication to the community.
A ceremony to commemorate the naming of the field will take place on Saturday, Sept. 7 at 2:00 p.m. during Asphalt Green’s Soccer Club (AGSC)’s first home game of the season. The event will be followed by a reception for people attending the event, including Asphalt Green board members, NYC elected officials and Litwin family members and supporters of the AGSC.
Mr. Litwin had an enduring commitment to and passion for the community in which the campus sits and the active lives of the residents and Litwin Field is a fitting tribute to that legacy. With this upgrade, the community will enjoy many more years of a field that provides its athletes with the same elements that professional sports teams utilize.
A number of Asphalt Green’s outdoor programs will utilize the new turf on Litwin Field at Asphalt Green, including competitive and recreational soccer, free community sports leagues and events, flag football, and summer camp. Litwin Field at Asphalt Green boasts nearly 90,000 square feet of IRONTURF™, GreenFields USA’s premium product and the turf of choice for the country’s most demanding sports venues, including the New England Patriots’ practice facility and an MLS soccer complex for Sporting Kansas City.
Asphalt Green now boasts New York City’s preeminent sports field. Asphalt Green expects the field to receive FIFA certification, making it the only field in Manhattan with such a distinction.
