2018 World Cup In Russian Will Adopt Artificial Turf
- Jun 28, 2018 -

In 2018, the opening match of the World Cup in Russia, the second semifinal and final match will be held at Luzhniki Stadium.

Due to the cold weather in Russia, the cost of turfgrass cultivation and maintenance costs are quite high. Therefore, in the country of Russia, most football fields use artificial grass. The World Cup has traditionally been played on real grass. There is no precedent for playing on artificial grass. What happens when Russia meets the World Cup?


It is reported that the 2018 World Cup final in Russia will be conducted under synthetic turf conditions, which is the first time in the history of the World Cup.

In November last year, SIS Pitches from Cambria, United Kingdom, laid new synthetic turf at the Luzhniki Stadium in Moscow and will host the final of the 2018 World Cup in Russia. The turf laying work took a total of 8 days. The new turf used this time is called SISGRASS, which contains 95% of natural grass, supplemented by artificial grass.


From the professionalism of football matches, this new turf has many advantages. It has GPS positioning and can be accurately mounted to the golf course. Second, the blended turf contains unique, soft polyethylene fibers that maximize player comfort. From the standpoint of cost and maintenance, it has the advantage that natural turf cannot match.


Ordinary natural turf pitches, if they are merely used as football venues, may be used at most 30 times a year, invest millions, use only 1 month in 1 year, and idle a lot in the rest of the year. This is a waste; if a lot To undertake concerts and other non-sport events, after the trade show, the stadium will become a vegetable field, which will seriously affect the football match. This synthetic turf will recover faster after being trampled. Compared to natural turf, mixed turf is less delicate and requires no additional maintenance. It has a shorter laying time and a life that is 3 times longer than conventional turf. Perhaps in the near future, hybrid turf will become a worldwide trend.
