During the annual inspection of the artificial grass system of Heracles Almelo in the Polman Stadium in Almelo (NL) it has been determined on behalf of FIFA that this system is still in an excellent state and condition even after a year of intensive use. The independent inspection body Sports Labs Ltd. in Scotland, which carried out the recent inspection for FIFA, is impressed by the state of the field and its underlying construction. They furthermore assessed that the artificial grass fibres are very resistant to abrasion. The field was therefore again awarded the FIFA Two Star accreditation, the highest level for paid football.
The artificial turf system installed at Heracles Almelo uses a combination TenCate Monoslide™ Pro and TenCate Tapeslide™ XT synthetic turf fibers.
