One of the three GreenFields XtraGrass pitches that were installed at Riga’s Baltic Sports Village in 2021 has recently been moved to Skonto Stadium, home of Riga FC and the Latvian national football team.

With great care, the sods of the hybrid pitch were removed and transported to Skonto Stadium to get re-installed there. Shortly after the completion of this project, the European Qualifiers match between Latvia and Turkey was played on the brand new pitch. Coaches and players were extremely satisfied with the quality of the pitch, which is still in great shape after being heavily used during the weeks after the match.

The project, including new field heating, was realized within a period of only 5 weeks thanks to GreenFields’ partners Baltic Sport Group, Riga FC and MODO Golf. Now that the XtraGrass pitch has been removed at Baltic Sports Village, a brand new turf system will be installed there after the summer. Stay tuned for more info on this great new GreenFields project!

Best of both worlds

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 sports. Plus, the patented weaving technique offers increased fibre bind, over standard tufting techniques. XtraGrass feels and plays like natural grass.
