XtraGrass hybrid grass pitch in stadium PSV De Herdgang

TUESDAY, AUGUST 20 - Last week PSV Eindhoven opened its renewed training complex "De Herdgang". The complex was recently renovated, and the artificial grass stadium pitch was replaced by an XtraGrass hybrid pitch.

The GreenFields XtraGrass hybrid system combines the positive properties of natural grass with the strength and durability of artificial turf, providing an elite playing surface for professional football. The patented weaving technique also offers an exceptional strength.

PSV, one of the three renowned Premier League clubs in the Netherlands, already installed various GreenFields pitches, including a patented woven synthetic turf pitch and the hybrid XtraGrass. Based on their good experiences with the existing XtraGrass pitch, PSV again opted for this product. The rootzone mixture for the XtraGrass pitch is specially prepared based on specifications and recommendations. The advanced field system is also equipped with a soil heating system and an automatic irrigation system. After the installation of the field is completed, GreenFields continues to support the ground maintenance team, by providing advice and sharing knowledge about XtraGrass.

The removed GreenFields MX artificial grass pitch will be reused in a training center in Burkina Faso. This is done in close collaboration with Rob Groener from Topscore Soccer Consultancy. The training center in Burkina Faso is managed by Rahim Ouédrago, former FC Twente player (1998-2007).
