IFK Norrköping opts for AstroTurf for new stadium pitch

Top Swedish soccer club IFK Norrköping, playing in Swedish highest soccer division Allsvenskan, has selected AstroTurf for the installation of the AstroTurf Soccer XI Arena system at their home ground. This redevelopment of the stadium turf will be done by AstroTurf and its Swedish project partner KSAB Konstgräs. As IFK Norrköping has the scoop for this newly designed turf system, we are very delighted to install it in the 1903 built Östgötaporten Stadium.

 

Turf for the win

AstroTurf designs systems to the exact specifications of championship players. That’s what we did for IFK Norrköping as well, which has resulted in a specially designed, high-performance AstroTurf Soccer XI Arena system for the club. The S-Curved yarn is strengthened with two ProSpines, which makes the yarn strong and durable and gives in combination with the E-Layer and EPDM infill, the system a long-lasting performance and unrivaled resilience. The unique, wide body yarn covers the infill and is flexible in all directions giving the surface an optimal ball roll performance. Definitely a turf for the win!

 

Östgötaporten

Östgötaporten, formerly known as Norrköpings Idrottspark, has a stadium capacity of app. 17.000. It is a stadium with great history, hosting matches during 1958 FIFA World Cup and EURO 1992. The stadium is rebuilt in 2008-2009. IFK Norrköping is the main player of the stadium, being Allsvenskan Champion in 2015.

 

Project execution

The renovation of the surface will be executed in June 2018, during 2018 FIFA World Cup. The new pitch is expected to be complete before the re-start of the Allsvenskan after EURO 2018, starting again July 8th. AstroTurf and KSAB are looking forward to working with IFK Norrköping on this prestigious project!

FIH confirms 10 Preferred Suppliers as part of Quality Programme for Hockey Turf

• Programme increases from seven suppliers

• Growth shows industry is benefitting from Programme

• More choices for facility owners

Lausanne, Switzerland: The International Hockey Federation (FIH) has announced the expansion of their Preferred Supplier category to 10 companies as it continues to grow the FIH Quality Programme for Hockey Turf. Following an extensive evaluation process, Act Global, AstroTurf, Edel, FieldTurf, Forbex, CC Grass, Greenfields and Tigerturf (subsidiaries of Tencate Grass), Lano and Polytan have all been approved as FIH Preferred Suppliers until the end of 2019.

By manufacturing hockey turf products and building hockey fields, these companies provide a one-stop approach to the installation of new hockey fields. In addition to meeting all the criteria of FIH Certified Manufacturers and Field Builders, the 10 suppliers have also demonstrated their commitment to working with the FIH to provide high-quality hockey fields suitable for international, national, club and development hockey.

As was the case when the Programme launched in 2015, only companies that are able to demonstrate this commitment to hockey are awarded this prestigious recognition. As part of the evaluation process, each have shown their desire to support FIH’s Hockey Revolution strategy which aims to make hockey a global game that inspires the next generation. As such, they will work closely with FIH to set industry standards and build the fields needed to grow and sustain the game.

Speaking of these appointments, FIH CEO Jason McCracken said: “We’re delighted to see the positive growth in the FIH Quality Programme. The fact that seven Preferred Suppliers renewed their licenses and two of the companies have upgraded from Certified Manufacturers suggests that they are seeing real commercial benefits from this initiative.”

He continued: “FIH remains focused on improving the quality of hockey facilities around the world – that is key to the long-term success of our sport. Last year we introduced international standards aimed at ensuring the sustainability, affordability and accessibility of hockey fields worldwide, key recommendations also outlined in the International Olympic Committee’s Olympic Agenda 2020. This forms an important component of our Hockey Revolution development strategy, fundamental to growing the game.”

Alastair Cox, FIH Facilities Manager, added: “The increase in Preferred Suppliers now gives facility owners a wider choice when selecting a company to provide both turf and installation services. By choosing one of these 10 companies they can ensure that their field will perform correctly, is safe, built to specification and maintains performance. As a result we hope that many more hockey fields will be FIH certified over the coming years across the world.”

The FIH Quality Programme is an internationally recognised quality-assurance programme that provides consistent and dependable industry standards for the performance, construction and durability of hockey turf installations worldwide and ensures the appropriate quality for the intended level of play. As a result it will help inspire more people to play hockey, promote player welfare and protect the investment of those funding hockey facilities.
