Case story

AFC Darwen

Darwen, England

Location: Darwen, England

Product: GreenFields MX Elite 60

Date: Summer 2019

Project Description:

AFC Darwen selected GreenFields to install an artificial 3G pitch measuring 106.90m x 74.70m meeting the standards for the recommended dimensions for a full-sized football pitch. The sports pitch installed was GreenFields MX Elite 60, a high-tech woven product manufactured using patented woven technology resulting in an extremely high tuft bind. This forces the fibres to stand straighter providing a more natural playing experience and visual appearance.

The football club converted from natural grass to the 7,828m² 3G sports surface – GreenFields MX Elite to enable increased playing hours. The conversion included removal of the natural grass as well as installation of drainage, all in preparation for the new 3G turf. Many teams have converted to our 3G woven system due to the high level of play possible and the reductions of cancellations in comparison to a natural turf pitch.

The new build construction features integral white lines for football play, also project completion featured a new LED floodlighting system, installation of perimeter rebound fencing including internal ball stop netting (5m) and spectator fencing (1.2m). Finishing touches included corner flags, football goals and signage featuring The Salmoners Lounge and AFC Darwen’s logo. The FIFA Quality accredited football pitch was completed with a logo mat supplied in AFC Darwen’s club logo colours.
