The planning and construction processes are what give the pitch the grand appearance it has today. However, it is also what is contained within the pitch that makes it truly special!
The pitch is made up of different layers which all help the durability necessary for a pitch. The layers are set out below:
Grit Blinding Layer
Lower Root Zone
Upper Root Zone
Desso GrassMaster Reinforcement
Approximately 20 million artificial grass fibres are sewn into the pitch, 20mm apart and looped to a depth of 200mm. The Desso is sewn in order for the plant roots to entwine and develop around the fibre, guaranteeing maximum stability.
A Sportsturf seed mix has been sown at a rate of 45g per square metre, a total of 400kg.
