3rd Generation Football Pitch
This pitch uses third generation (3G) technology in artificial grass surfaces, which aims to mimic the performance and characteristics of natural grass as closely
as possible. The playing surface is ideal for a range of sports, including rugby, football and lacrosse, and the pitch is floodlit, allowing play to continue
in virtually all weather conditions, day and night.
The rubber crumb artificial turf meets the specific standards set out by both the Football Association and the Rugby Football Union and helps to prevent injury.
It gives access to all-weather facilities equal to top sports universities such as Loughborough, Leeds and Cardiff.
