The product has been tested to meet with the latest IRB, FIFA 1 and FIFA 2 Star standards, and developed in line with the highest safety and performance standards within the industry, making it suitable for all levels of skill and ability.

Synthetic Turf Management, the experts in installation and management of synthetic turf, delivered the project on time for the opening.
