  • Dollamur Sport Surfaces Plays Key Role in Critically-Acclaimed Foxcatcher Movie

    Brand Provides Custom Wrestling Mats, Technical Consultation for Film Starring Steve Carell, Channing Tatum – Premiering Nov. 14

    foxcatcher_ver2(FORT WORTH, TX)Dollamur Sports Surfaces (Dollamur) – the world’s largest manufacturer and distributor of high-performance sports surfaces for wrestling, martial arts, mixed martial arts, fitness, gymnastics, cheerleading and yoga – announces it supplied custom mats for the critically-acclaimed wrestling movie “Foxcatcher,” to premiere nationwide Nov. 14.

    Based on the true story, the film is a portrayal of Olympic gold-medal wrestling champion Mark Schultz (played by Channing Tatum) and his brother Dave and their tragic, psychological relationship with multi-millionaire John du Pont (Steve Carell).

    For on-screen accuracy, Dollamur created exact replicas of the original mats used at the Foxcatcher Farm wrestling facility where the story takes place. Period-correct wrestling uniforms and Foxcatcher logoed gear were recreated by All American Wrestling Supply – Dollamur’s apparel division. The brand’s innovative modern Flex-Connect™ mats were also used for extensive wrestling training undergone by many of the movie’s actors.

    "Wrestling mats have evolved significantly since the mid-1990s, so we knew only a custom product would deliver the correct authenticity that the producers desired," said Dollamur National Sales Manager Dave Miller, who also acted as a film consultant and even has a small on-screen role.. "Our extensive manufacturing experience and USA-based production facilities give us the expertise and flexibility to take on interesting and challenging projects of this nature.”

    The largest tournament mat supplier in North America, Dollamur is the preferred choice at hundreds of top-level sporting competitions, including many national championships and Olympic-qualifying tournaments. The company has official wrestling partnerships with USA Wrestling, NCAA, ACC, Big 10 Conference, North American Grappling Association and 12 high school state wrestling championships, among others.
