Just outside Lviv, Ukraine, the new Rukh Football Academy is constructed. The Academy includes several full-size football pitches: one GreenFields MX Elite pitch (a high-tech, woven pitch), one GreenFields MX NF pitch (our woven non-fill solution) and multiple hybrid XtraGrass pitches. More pitches will be installed this year and next year.


Ihor Dedyshyn, the CEO of FC Rukh, chose GreenFields after examining the top ten turf producing companies certified by FIFA, and visiting GreenFields pitches at Heracles Almelo (MX Elite) and Vitesse Arnhem (XtraGrass).  


The Rukh Football Academy is the second project with XtraGrass in Lviv, after last year’s successful installation of XtraGrass in Arena Lviv: the 35,000 seat football stadium that was used during Euro 2012.
