Hamilton Academical FC’s stadium, New Douglas Park, with a capacity for 6,078 spectators, features TigerTurf’s Total Turf 60 XQ, a leading multi-sport third generation (3G) surface, consisting of two unique profiled fibres, which is part-filled with sand and rubber infill. The individual components of this FIFA-approved system combine to provide unrivalled split resistance, along with improved performance, durability and visual characteristics. Thanks to the XQ™ technology of materials technology company TenCate, the synthetic turf fibres have a ‘vertical memory’: even with intensive use, the fibres remain upright.
Paul Langford, Managing Director at TigerTurf
UK, comments: “Following the installation of the TigerTurf pitch, you can see that Hamilton Academical have benefited from the consistency and high playability that our FIFA-approved system delivers, and has helped to contribute to a historic promotion to the premier league. It’s fantastic to see a synthetic surface hosting fixtures for one of the top divisions in Europe, and raising the profile of 3G surfaces for elite-level football. We congratulate Hamilton on this season’s epic performance and wish the Accies every success in the season ahead.”
