New Geofill training field at training facilities in London.
In May, the contract has been signed between FC Watford and Italgreen for their new synthetic turf with Geofill training field. The installation is foreseen to be realized in July 2017. The preferred Football Turf system will be the Double4 45 which will be built on a shockpad and infilled with the environmental and natural infill Geofill.
Important in their decision making process was the new resilient synthetic turf fiber Double4 combined with the natural infill Geofill.
The Football synthetic turf field will be a new asset to FC Watford training facilities who plays in the Premier League. The club was founded in 1881 and has already built up a history in the Football World.
The general trend in the marketplace is the direction to more environmental infill solutions. Besides, the Geofill provides also a more natural playing behavior. Italgreen is leading in this market segment with their patented Geofill Football synthetic turf .
Our 21 Football Turf systems have been tested to new FIFA requirements which were launched in October 2015. All our Football Turf systems are passing FIFA Quality and FIFA Quality Pro standards. Also the training field at FC Watford will be FIFA tested.
Geofill concept has been introduced 10 years ago and has been installed on football fields around the globe. FC Novara is playing already for 7 years on a Geofill field and recently the field was successfully FIFA tested again.
