Why do American football players use turf tape?

With more and more football players spotted with a tape patched from their triceps down to their wrists, turf tapes are gaining popularity in football players and are quickly spilling over to your local team. 


What is turf tape for?

Turf tape is a type of athletic tape usually made up of nylon and cotton with a medical adhesive. It is used to protect the arms or body from “turf burns, scrapes, blisters, and calluses” resulting from body-to-body or body-to-surface contact. Although usual turf tape prevents cuts and scrapes, it doesn’t have the same muscle and joint support which can also serve as turf tape. If you know you’ll be on the ground during game time, this is the perfect product to avoid unnecessary injury

Aside from its performance benefits, turf tapes are also a nice statement piece while playing on the field. Whether you’re in the mood to sport bright colors or go with basics, tapes can definitely make you stand out while you run towards your touchdowns.
