The army recently built a pontoon bridge across the stream that separates the large car park from the two hockey stadiums. The GreenFields Stadium is built on an existing car park, so visitors have to park further away. The new pedestrian bridge can now take spectators to the GreenFields Stadium, and the Kyocera Stadium is located directly behind.  

The GreenFields Stadium can accommodate 5000 visitors, and includes one thousand covered seats for spectators. The Kyocera Stadium has 15,000 covered seats. Six matches are scheduled to take place each day during the Hockey World Cup, and each of these matches will attract a fresh crowd of spectators — so the temporary bridge is likely to get busy! The Australian and Malaysian teams will be the first competitors to go head to head on the GreenFields synthetic grass pitch.

tcm:28-32734 <![CDATA[ Finishing touches ]]> 15-5-2014 9:44:57 The team laying the synthetic turf on the new hockey pitch in the Kyocera Stadium is now carrying out the high-precision task of positioning the white shooting circles in front of the goals. Severe storms and heavy rain has meant that staying on schedule has been a challenge. Luckily, the sun is now shining down on the stadium once again and the GreenFields TX turf—the official synthetic turf for the Hockey World Cup—has had a chance to dry out. The team laying the pitch can now get to work applying the adhesive for the shooting circles to the high standard of quality that is required. The team is still larger than usual, with the extra members helping to make up for some of the time lost. The final inspections are scheduled to take place in a few days' time. Once this stage is complete, the first national teams will be able to try out the high-quality synthetic turf system at this year's Hockey World Cup for themselves.

tcm:28-32602 <![CDATA[ All hands on deck at the Kyocera Stadium ]]> 9-5-2014 14:55:32 The sky above the Kyocera Stadium in The Hague is getting cloudier by the minute, so on the ground, it's all hands on deck. "Wind and rain make it harder for us to stay on schedule", says one member of the team laying the turf. While the synthetic turf used by football club ADO Den Haag is still being removed, the team is working elsewhere in the stadium to lay GreenFields TX, the official turf of the Hockey World Cup. In some locations, the team has already started gluing the rolled out turf down. "We have a special glue that we can use to fix rolls of synthetic turf to one another even if they're wet". The team laying the synthetic grass has now doubled in size. "Some national teams are absolutely itching to get practising in this stadium. And we're scheduled to perform our final inspections before handover in a few days' time. But we're keeping our cool: quality is more important than speed!"

Or, in other words: construction sites are always dangerous places. For this reason, safety and security are high on the list of priorities during the construction of the GreenFields Stadium. One of the security guards is Sharief Abdoelradjak. "I've been here since the beginning when it was still just a big sandpit. It's nice to see the stadium grow every day".

The hockey club recently acquired new synthetic turf. The club chose GreenFields® TX, which makes the pitch an ideal training location. The teams taking part in the Hockey World Cup always train on GreenFields® TX synthetic turf, which is the same turf used on the pitches for the World Cup matches.

The weather is great and the pleasant temperature makes laying the turf even easier. "The warmer, the better", says John Papakonstantinou, one of the foremen who is currently laying the turf at the GreenFields Stadium. "When it's cold, the mats are as stiff as a board. But at the moment they are nice and pliable, which makes it easier for us to straighten and cut the GreenFields TX mats. The synthetic grass mats are just more flexible".
