When players in the Thailand National hockey team arrive at the Institute of Physical Education at Chonburi Campus Stadium they know that they will be playing on one of the world’s most advanced hockey pitches.
Despite producing more artificial grass than any company in the world, not much remains in its home town of Nanjing. So, when the Nanjing Foreign Language School decided to install a synthetic turf pitch, CCGrass ensured it was given the “red” carpet treatment.
With the world’s attention on plastic waste and FIFA’s specific focus on the recycling of synthetic turf at the end of its life, the installation of a new synthetic turf concept, by market leaders CCGrass, addresses future concerns.
The result is a playing surface featuring the Superb fibre, made from the highest quality PE at a dtex of 17,000, considerably heavier than most synthetic turf fibres. This is combined with a curly yarn that is designed to replicate the roots of the turf. Together, the two fibres produce a surface that looks and plays like a high quality natural turf field.
The Irish Independent Park field passed World Rugby Regulation 22 tests ahead of its first major playing test, when Munster hosted pre-season matches against London Irish and Exeter Chiefs. First impressions have been excellent with players commenting positively on the new pitch.
CCGrass, the world’s largest producer of synthetic turf, and FIFA Preferred Producer, has recently completed a FIFA Forward Project in Puerto Rico. The pitch, installed for the West Centre of Football Development (El Centro de Desarrollo de Futbol del Oeste) in Anasco, was built to FIFA Quality standards.
Certainly in England we are seeing the hottest summer on record. Grass is parched, the ground is rapidly turning to dust and there is no sign of a respite on the horizon. If you are lucky enough to be able to water your sports field, then its greenness will stand out from the brown surrounds, just as the golf greens at Carnoustie stood out from the fairways and rough at the British Open.
When CCGrass, the world’s largest manufacturer of synthetic turf, developed their latest yarn, they did so to meet the requirements of top level football, whilst offering the durability and longevity that junior football clubs require to cope with the heavy demand on their pitches. And now, in Cyprus, at Paeek FC, a Cypriot second division club, players of all abilities are benefiting from the most advanced CCGrass artificial grass football surface.
Amateur club football in the Netherlands has benefited from synthetic turf pitches for many years, and now Maastricht club, VV Scharn has a brand new CCGrass artificial grass football field for its many teams and players.
There is a reason why CCGrass artificial grass products have been installed in over 100 countries. Apart from offering the widest choice of surfaces, each made under an exacting quality control system, for CCGra
