Artificial Pitches - A New Generation Of Grass

Today we follow on from the thread of a previous artificial grass blog post when we discussed the subject of grass allergies. We quoted an example of French footballer Yoan Gouffran who prefers to play on artificial grass because he is allergic to natural grass.

Playing football on artificial grass is becoming increasingly popular but not everyone is as much a fan as Yoan Gouffran. There are many people who still hold an image in their minds of the poor quality 'plastic grass' of the 60's and 70's.

Today, however, the artificial grass used to build artificial soccer pitches is an entirely different product. Stringent criteria are adhered to in order to ensure a quality playing surface that will stand up to rigorous demands at both national and international level. Moreover, a premier artificial pitch manufacturer such as Support In Sport can even offer its clients the option of producing an individual grass carpet specification if required. Now that really is 21st century sports technology!

SIS is a unique example in the field of artificial pitch supply and we are privileged to be part of the same company group. They not only manufacture artificial sports turf, they also design and construct sports pitches AND they offer the same service for natural grass right up to world-class level with football club clients that include Real Madrid, Manchester United, Benfica, Juventus, Ajax, Porto FC and Shakhtar Donetsk to name but a few.

"Is an artificial pitch what you need?"

This is the first question in their 7 Steps To the Perfect Artificial Pitch guide and testimony to their genuine commitment to provide only the most appropriate playing surface for a sports club.
