CCGrass, the world’s largest producer of synthetic turf products, is delighted to announce that World Rugby has confirmed CCGrass’s appointment as an official World Rugby Preferred Turf Producer. The Preferred Turf Producer process has been developed to recognize those manufacturers capable of supplying the highest quality and safest rugby pitches, no matter what level of play is required.

Each World Rugby Preferred Turf Producer oversees the manufacture, installation and maintenance of rugby fields, world-wide, in conformance with World Rugby Regulation 22. This ensures that each rugby pitch is tested and registered to ensure that player welfare and pitch performance meet the requirements of the sport.

Being a World Rugby Preferred Turf Producer is the highest honor achievable and only goes to companies that meet all the criteria of World Rugby. In addition, there is a recognized responsibility to promote rugby world-wide; one which CCGrass is excited to take on. European Office CEO, Bryn Lee adds: “Whilst rugby is extremely popular in many countries, there are others where the sport’s development is ongoing. As CCGrass supplies products to over 100 markets, we are committed to promoting Regulation 22 into areas where the sport is not as well known.”

For CCGrass, rugby is an exciting sport with huge growth opportunities, and CCGrass looks forward to introducing a new range of rugby systems to its extensive network of partners, this year.

CCGrass General Manager, Mr. Qiangxiang Wang comments: “We are delighted to have been recognized by World Rugby and believe that the Preferred Producer status will help CCGrass to ensure better quality rugby fields that are installed globally. This is another example where CCGrass is trusted by the world.”
