Benefits of Artificial Turf
Football pitches with real grass can only endure a set amount of hours of play time before the surface becomes worn. The negative effects can include bald patches, muddy areas, faded line markings and an inconsistent surface.
Artificial turf systems in football benefit from approximately twice as much play time per week before any maintenance is required. Maintenance simply includes brushing, basic testing and sanitation.
Artificial turf has several advantages over real grass:
- Green all year round
- Low maintenance
- UV stable
- Meets EU requirements with no harmful chemicals
- Environmentally friendly with recycled materials
