Rugby as a sport was quick to adopt new generation artificial grass surfaces for the development of the game. Climatic conditions in many countries where the game is played mean that natural grass surfaces become badly worn and unsuitable in winter. In these countries, a good quality artificial turf pitch is the ideal solution. Especially pitches certified as multi-use pitches, where both rugby and soccer can be played.
