The International Hockey Federation (FIH) announces seven new official suppliers as part of the quality programme for hockey turf. TenCate Grass has been selected as one of the new official suppliers in the quality programme of the FIH. During the partnership between the FIH, TenCate Grass will represent the brands GreenFields and TigerTurf.
As part of the FIH Quality Programme for Hockey Turf, the selected suppliers manufacture hockey turf products and build hockey fields. Their service provision therefore allows customers to benefit from a one-stop approach to the construction of their new hockey field. In addition to meeting all the criteria of FIH Certified Manufacturers and Field Builders, TenCate Grass has demonstrated her commitment to working with the FIH around the world to provide high-quality hockey fields suitable for international, national, club and development hockey. Only companies that are able to demonstrate their commitment to hockey are awarded this prestigious recognition.
Alastair Cox, FIH Facilities Manager: “We are delighted to announce these seven suppliers into our official quality assurance programme. Organisations can now be confident that by using these suppliers, their field will perform correctly, is safe, built to specification and maintains performance. As a result, this will improve the sustainability and affordability of hockey turf fields, which will have a significant impact on the long term development of hockey.” TenCate Grass has already proven to invest in hockey by becoming a partner of the Dutch hockey association three years ago. Working together with the Dutch hockey association has led to becoming the official supplier for the World Cup hockey field in 2014 in The Hague.
