Alloa, United Kingdom, 28 April 2016 – GreenFields UK Ltd, the innovative market leader in synthetic turf systems, and specialist sports pitch constructor Allsports Construction and Maintenance Ltd have continued their strategic partnership by providing Alloa Athletic FC (Alloa, UK) with the ‘Choice of Champions’ state-of-the-art FIFA accredited 3G and 3D woven artificial turf pitch named GreenFields® MX. Alloa Athletic FC who have been extremely happy with their previous GreenFields surface, have decided to use another advanced GreenFields sports product for their new development.
Mike Mulraney, Chairman at Alloa Athletic FC commented on the stadium developments: “Having put our faith in GreenFields and Allsports nine years ago when we laid our existing pitch, we have been so pleased by the advanced sports surface that we have once again selected the same team to provide our new surface for this coming season. Despite both club and community use our pitch has continued to perform to the very highest FIFA standards, which made this decision very easy for the Club. The 3D woven GreenFields® MX surface stood out as the best on the market and we look forward to another long association with these dedicated companies.”

The GreenFields® MX Trimension is a high quality 3D woven product
providing a natural experience for players as well as being highly resilient match after match. Our partner in Scotland, Allsports is a well-known pitch constructor who has already worked on a number of high profile projects alongside GreenFields.”
Natural player experience
Alloa Athletic FC have selected the high-tech GreenFields® MX Trimension product, which offers a playing surface that is fully inspired by nature and on which players will feel ‘at home’ due to the natural look and feel. The patented weave technology results in an extremely high tuft bind resulting in clumps of fibres retaining their vertical memory. This synthetic turf system has a longlasting performance providing a player experience like that of natural grass with excellent ball roll, ball bounce, grip, traction and shock absorption. Previous installations of GreenFields® MX into professional stadiums and first team training grounds include the United Kingdom Arsenal FC Training Ground, Falkirk FC Stadium, Charlton Athletic FC Training Ground- Sparrows Lane Academy and the National Sports Performance Centre at Heriot-Watt University.
Work is due to start at Alloa Athletic FC at the beginning of May 2016 to be complete in early June 2016.
