XtraGrass pitches for Vitesse GelreDome stadium and training facility
Dutch football club, Vitesse, is having a new pitch laid at its home stadium, the GelreDome, as well as at its Papendal training facility. The prestigious Arhnem club came fifth in the 2014-15 Dutch Eredivisie. The club elected for revolutionary hybrid natural grass pitches, XtraGrass™, which will be laid during the season’s Summer break.
XtraGrass is a natural grass pitch, enhanced with a woven artificial grass backing. The proportion of natural grass to artificial grass in the pitch’s composition is 90 percent to ten percent, respectively. The hybrid XtraGrass system is an innovation by GreenFields, part of Dutch materials technology enterprise, Royal Ten Cate NV.
