A modular pitch
StadiaPitch is a world class pitch system for major sports stadiums where sports tournaments such as the Premier League, Champions League and World Cups are played. The pitch has from the start been specifically developed to meet the highest quality playing surface standards that are expected at these types of tournaments.
StadiaPitch is a modular hybrid grass pitch system designed, built and tested by the STRI Group, in cooperation with Bosch Rexroth, Sapa and Nutcracker. Each module is 4.5 x 9 meters in size and weighs about 25 tonnes.
STRI is recognised as the world-leading consultancy for sports turf research, design, construction and management. They are the consultants for FIFA and provide advice on development and maintenance of pitches to stadiums across the globe. Their team consists of world-renowned scientists and consultants, who support clients through all stages of pitch design and development, as well as providing comprehensive advice on turf management. Their goal is to ensure that the highest quality playing surface is achieved.
STRI is responsible for making our StadiaPitch vision a reality. STRI is conducting our grass research and our prototypes are being tested and built at their main research facility in UK. Their research team is responsible for designing a complete pitch system that, when managed correctly, consistently delivers a stadium pitch with premium grass quality. They are also engaged in StadiaPitch installation and maintenance and will support turf managers at future StadiaPitch stadiums to deliver successfully high-quality stadium pitches.
