The use of synthetic turf in professional pitches is constantly growing. To ensure the quality of the games on this type of surface, FIFA developed a method of certification for soccer fields with synthetic grass called “FIFA QUALITY CONCEPT”, which began in 2001.
Testes – abrasividade, resistência, velocidade de rolagem da bola, ângulo e altura do quique – feitos tanto em gramado natural quanto sintético são usados como parâmetro para a definição da qualidade dos campos de grama sintética.
Test results show that technical and tactical aspects of the game are minimally changed between one surface and another, which is irrelevant to the final score.
Sportlink is the first synthetic turf manufacturer in Latin America to obtain this recommendation, thanks to a technical qualification process of the production plant and improved products as well as the optimization of installation processes.VIEW FIELDS
