XtraGrass at FC Metalurg Almalyk Uzbekistan stadium

 

In March 2014 the new XtraGrass pitch in the main stadium of Almalyk was opened. This is the first hybrid state of the art pitch in Uzbekistan. The first reactions of the players that had the opportunity to play on this surface are  „satisfying and comfortable!!”
