Four artificial pitches to be installed at new training complex AZ Alkmaar with TenCate Grass components
This summer, the Dutch football club AZ Alkmaar will have 4 new pitches installed at their new training facility. These pitches are going to be constructed with the synthetic turf fibres and primary backing of TenCate Grass.
In these new pitches, the latest shock pad, TenCate Sine® will be installed under the toplayer. This innovative layer, developed by TenCate strengthens the playing characteristics and is easier on joints and muscles. Also TenCate Sine® ensures a longer life of the overall system in that it is very durable, gives stability and reduces the wear and tear of the pitch.
Innovative shock pad combined with new features and applications
Work is already well underway, the construction of the facility started on June 9th. "Soon, here we can assist and develop our players even better," said AZ's Director General Affairs, Robert Eenhoorn on that occasion. "We can train our talents with the most innovative services and applications."
The facility is not based in the city of Alkmaar itself, but in the neighboring town of Wormerveer. AZ wants to underline that they want to be a club for the entire region.
First youth, then A-selection
After the summer, the ultramodern training facility will be the home of the entire youth of AZ Alkmaar. The first team of the football club will train here as well, once the main building, offices and other training facilities are finished.
