FC Den Bosch opts for high-quality GreenFields® MX artificial grass system

First division team FC Den Bosch has purchased the high-quality GreenFields® MX artificial grass system, to be installed in the Bosch stadium starting Monday, 17 June by installer C.S.C. Ceelen Sport Constructies and to be completed on Thursday, 18 July 2013. Following premier league teams like Heracles Almelo and PEC Zwolle, this superior quality artificial grass field from system supplier GreenFields, with top-quality fibre from manufacturer TenCate, offers FC Den Bosch a long-lasting excellent quality sports surface with unique properties and a field that is fully recyclable.

The Jupiler League had to contend with quite a few cancellations at a number of football clubs last season. The reason was the prolonged severe winter weather in our country that put considerable pressure throughout the season on the match schedule of the first division clubs playing on natural grass fields. FC Den Bosch is now eliminating this problem in the future by installing high-quality artificial turf in its stadium. In addition to increasing play intensity on the field, FC Den Bosch also wanted to use the stadium for training facilities. Last year, the club sold its training complex to the Municipality of Den Bosch, which uses the location for a different purpose.

<h2>Human capital</h2>

Professional football players are the valuable human capital of a professional football association. They need to be able to excel in their sport on a high-quality surface that is both safe and durable in terms of technical properties. Thanks to the patented TenCate weaving technique used, the GreenFields® MX system yields the highest returns on investment for the association in terms of both players and playing field. Peter Bijvelds, Director of FC Den Bosch, explains the switch to artificial turf: “This decision is purely based on practical and quality considerations. We chose the ultimate option. That means an artificial grass field that resembles natural grass in every respect as much as possible in terms of both playing experience and appearance. Inspired in part by the highly positive experiences of other football clubs in both paid and amateur football, we ultimately chose GreenFields® MX.”

<h2>Unique properties</h2>

The GreenFields® MX artificial grass system offers an optimal playing experience. This high-quality field enables players in football shoes to easily stand on the mat, move freely, quicken their pace across the field, get their foot properly under the ball and make slidings. In addition to these technical properties, the top-quality artificial grass fibres from manufacturer TenCate offer maximum durability and material safety.
