Most Improved Pitch in the Championship for Charlton Athletic FC

The GreenFields pitch at Charlton Athletic FC’s (CAFC) stadium, The Valley has been elected by the International Football Pitch Advisory (IFPA) as the most improved pitch from the previous season in The Sky Bet Championship.

In Summer 2014, GreenFields completed the natural grass field with an organic fibre sand reinforcement installed in the upper root zone. This project was the first natural grass contract for GreenFields UK selected for the development due to the company’s global expertise in this area as well as its previous success with a number of innovative products and projects. The run off was produced using an artificial product, GreenFields Evolution XQ 50. GreenFields UK acted as the Main Contractor and CDMC on this project.

Following on from the success of the stadium pitch, GreenFields were selected to produce two training pitches at The Charlton Athletic FC Academy. Our MX Trimension 50 artificial surface was this time selected for both pitches due to its strong durability and ability to sustain many hours of rigorous training and play.

Both pitches have now been completed as part of CAFC’s new state-of-the-art training ground complex at Sparrows Lane. Once the entire renovation of the site is complete, it will be shared between the club and the Charlton Athletic Community Trust, in addition to being utilised by The University of Greenwich.
