    Before the green synthetic turf is rolled out , the temporary GreenFields Stadium for the Rabobank Hockey World Cup 2014 turns black. At this time, the E-layer is applied. This is the thin layer that allows for more elasticity and damping of the mat and also determines the ball behavior.

    TenCate is the official partner of the Royal Dutch Hockey Federation, KNHB, since September 2012. The collaboration between TenCate and the KNHB will focus on among other areas the Men’s and Women’s Hockey World Cup, which will take place in and around The Hague, the Netherlands from the 31st of May till 15th of June.

    University of Western Ontario - Edel Grass

    In the spring of 2013 a delegation from the University of Western Ontario, Canada visited several rugby projects in Ireland and the UK which were installed with Edel Future DS 60 from Edel Grass. The delegation, including a number of players, were very enthusiastic about the product, resulting in an order for two fields. One synthetic turf pitch will be used for rugby and soccer while the other one will be used for lacrosse and soccer. The purple color of the synthetic fiber for this field was specially made by TenCate Grass.

     

    The second project that was finalized is a synthetic turf field for the Cardinal Newman School in Ontario, Canada. This synthetic turf field is installed with 10,000 m² Edel Soccer Future DS 55. To realize a natural look the grass surface has a mowing effect. The field will be used for American Football, soccer and hockey.
