With already a few friendlies under its belt the new 3G pitch at Hyde United F.C. was more than ready for its first league match, which took place on Saturday and saw Hyde win with an impressive 2 goals to 0 in their first competitive home match on their new elite surface.

“The feedback so far has been excellent! One of the officials commented it was by far the best 3G surface he had ever officiated on. The technology is massively different from other 3Gs, it performs like a grass pitch with increased durability.”

Pete Ainger, General Manager, Hyde United FC

Utilising GreenFields® MX TriMension- the latest in sports turf innovation, accredited to FIFA two star standard and used by top clubs around the world including at Arsenal F.C’s Training Ground, Falkirk F.C. Stadium, PSV Eindhoven and Charlton Athletic F.C’s Training Ground. MX TriMension utilises patented triple W-weave technology resulting in an extremely high tuft bind. This high tech synthetic turf system has a long-lasting performance providing a player experience like that of natural grass with excellent ball roll, ball bounce, grip, traction and shock absorption.

The installation was enabled by a £400,000 plus investment from Tameside Borough Council providing not only a competitive sports pitch but a facility for the whole community as well. The club is overjoyed with their new pitch and have already seen an increase in pitch bookings and potential revenue.

The launch of the pitch which took place at the beginning of August was attended by local councillors, club officials, GreenFields representatives along with the Mayor of Tameside who even took his own penalty shot on the new high tech pitch.

With the new football pitch now installed, GreenFields have also agreed an enhanced sponsorship deal which will support the community development work at Hyde enabling greater participation in sports in the local area.

Commercial Director at GreenFields, Paul Milton commented: “We are thrilled to have a GreenFields MX pitch on our doorstep, and are looking forward to a long collaboration with the club.”
