When the National Stadium in Nicaragua needed to upgrade its artificial grass pitch, CCGrass’s Libra 50 system was chosen. For the client, it was important to achieve the FIFA Quality Pro standard, as this synthetic turf ground hosts the national Nicaraguan team’s matches. Working alongside local company partner “Stadium Source”, the project was completed and the pitch passed with flying colours.

Two hundred kilometers north of Melbourne lies the city of Shepparton, where CCGrass synthetic turf has been applied to the two new FIH certified fields at the Shepparton Sports Precinct. The Greater Shepparton City Council is well underway with its $21M investment into the redevelopment of the new sporting hub for the Goulburn Valley Region, and CCGrass, a FIH certified manufacturer, has played an important role in delivering the Shepparton community quality facility. The synthetic hockey pitch of the first project, Shepparton Hockey Center, was completed in May of 2015, at the home of the Goulburn Valley Hockey Association. The total area of this pitch is 7,200m2 and it was installed with the new HF 13 Hybrid synthetic grass system, which offers superior comfort to players and fantastic ball speed, all of which are winners when asking the professionals. The new HF13 Hybrid synthetic surface has been tested and certified to the National requirements of FIH and thus is qualified to hold FIH national level hockey games.
