Making a Mark (Quite Literally!) in The Top Tiers of English Football with Football Touchline Fitting Using Artificial Grass

8th August 2017

Ever wondered about that small area next to the football pitch used for officials and spectators of the match? The chances are...these are not noticeable, or if they are it is for the wrong reasons. This area is just as important as the actual playing field but is often left neglected; muddy, patchy and even uneven in some places which could be a huge hazard if the player slides onto it. STM football touchline fitting has been used for many professional clubs to transform the sides of the pitch.

Artificial turf is used for touchlines because not only is it designed to look and feel like real grass, so it blends in with the height of the pitch grass, but it is also renowned for being heavy wearing and long lasting. It can also withstand the sliding tackles that may occasionally slip away from the playing field.
Here are some of the football touchline projects we have done for the game:
