AstroTurf Europe and Scottish contractor, Fairways Sportsgrounds, has helped the organisers of the sell-out Celtic FC Festival, create a training academy at Glasgow’s Scottish Event Campus (SEC).

The first ever Official Celtic FC Festival (July 26 – July 28 2019) was a great success with thousands of fans attending. Two indoor pitches, one of 1.200 m² and the other 400 m², using the latest non-infill AstroTurf Soccer Zero XI 30 turf, have been created in a custom built arena. The new surface was home of the Celtic soccer academy which had feature ‘train & play’ sessions, plus a host of family events throughout the weekend.

Dave Gibson, Fairways Sportsgrounds’ Contracts Director, said:
“This is an indoor pitch with a difference. Event team PSP Media commissioned a top-of-the range surface which will measure up to high use and then after the weekend it will be lifted and used elsewhere.”
