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 the World Cup, starting again July 8th. AstroTurf and KSAB are looking forward to working with IFK Norrköping on this prestigious project!
