THE NEW FOOTBALL PITCH IN ARTIFICIAL TURF OF THE PAOLO ROSSI ACADEMY

New football pitch in artificial turf

Very popular all over the world and for international competitions, the state-of-the-art artificial turfs are making their way in Italy, even in the A league soccer championship. The system used in the football pitch of the Paolo Rossi Academy is the same used in the pitches where A and B professional leagues championships are played, and is called 62 Lesmo GEOfill; it consists of three essential elements.

La struttura del campo in erba sinteticaFirst of all, a layer of single blade artificial turf, 62 mm thick, formed by fibers up to 200 Micron thick, with such features to allow an instant return to its original shape and vertical position after being bent by the foot traffic (the fibers are produced by a typical S-shaped die plate). The fibers used are nonabrasive, UV-rays resistant, antifreeze and longlasting.

Nature and technology

La struttura del campo in erba sinteticaThe other elements, composing the state-of-the-art system used by the Paolo Rossi Academy are: stabilizing sand infill, with silica 0,45 ÷ 0,80 mm granules, providing the first layer with the necessary ballast on the whole surface, and the plant-extracted infill in organic granules, named GEOfill®.

This one is composed of natural organic and eco-friendly elements (such as vegetal, mineral, antifreeze, antifouling fibers and ecological additives) that, keeping constant humidity and allowing a perfect drainage, ensure the quality of the ground, which becomes properly flexible and comfortable for the athletes.

THE BENEFIT HEALTH The natural infill is beneficial to the safety of the athletes: it is non toxic, nonabrasive when in contact with skin, harmless and nonirritating to eyes, harmless for the airways even in case of accidental ingestion.

The typical smell of the topsoil, furthermore, together with the high density of grass blades (over 130.000 blades per sqm.) and the color (realized in tree different shades of green) give the pitch an incredible similarity to the natural grass.

RECOMMENDED studded football boots FG/AG for both natural and artificial grass soils of the Paolo Rossi Academy (Perugia, Italy)..

RECOMMENDED STUDDED FOOTBALL BOOTS FG/AG FOR BOTH NATURAL AND ARTIFICIAL GRASS SOILS

The new studded football boots FG/AG can be used on both natural and artificial grass football pitches thanks to a better distribution of the studs, with different sizes, which allows a better support of the sole of the foot on the playground preventing potential studs’ malfunction, as for the FG models (especially for the laminated studs)
