BOLINGBROOK, IL (August 30, 2023) - The University of Nebraska recently installed Gerflor’s Taraflex® Sport Flooring in its outdoor football stadium for Volleyball Day, breaking the world record for attendance for a women’s sporting event and any volleyball game worldwide. Over 92,000 fans attended this historic event and watched the top-rated Nebraska Huskers Women’s Volleyball Team play on Taraflex Sports Flooring.
“Taraflex and the University of Nebraska partnered 8 years ago when Coach John Cook reached out to us expressing interest in Taraflex,” said Benjamin Bachman, CEO of Gerflor USA. “It has been a wonderful relationship ever since.”
Taraflex sports flooring is the world’s most recognized, specified and preferred sports surface. It is the Official Championship Court for NCAA DI Volleyball and is a trusted choice for the world’s best athletes. Taraflex provides the ultimate court surface for elite volleyball players who rapidly pivot, slide, dive and jump.
The University of Nebraska is a leader in providing opportunities for female athletes and creating an environment that encourages and supports their success. This event was an outstanding demonstration of how the university is committed to the growth and development of female athletes.
“We are honored to be a part of this amazing event,” said Benjamin. “It was an incredible opportunity to provide Taraflex Sports Flooring for the University of Nebraska and its athletes.
