Fieldturf Official Supplier of the French Galaxy Cup
10/07/2013 – FieldTurf, Tarkett’s Outdoor Sports Division, installed 1,600 sqm of turf for the Galaxy Cup final, the reference in five-a-side football competition in France.
As official supplier of the fifth edition of the Galaxy Cup, organized by United Players, FieldTurf installed its new Ecozone Classic HD turf on three fields especially dedicated to the final in Paris on July 6 and 7.
This new solution, launched in June 2013 and based on sustainability and game comfort, was created by FieldTurf R&D teams. Designed with the slit-film Classic HD yarn in combination with a recycled-polyester yarn made from recycled water bottles, Ecozone Classic HD is both performant and eco-friendly. Producing 600 sqm of turf requires around a ton of recycled bottles, around 2.5 tons were used for the 1,600 sqm of the Galaxy Cup turf.
United Players relied on FieldTurf’s expertise and know-how to give the Galaxy Cup's finalists the optimal playing experience on a playing surface that is both reliable and sustainable.
With more than 7,000 turf pitches across the world, FieldTurf is the world leader in artificial turf. With partnerships including Clairefontaine, the French football training center, and the FC Barcelona, FieldTurf is always proving its mastery in the sector and continues to supply the greatest clubs.
