Cooperation between the partners and research institutes under the coordination of TenCate Grass, provides synthetic turf systems with the highest possible quality and the longest lifespan. This gives players confidence in playing characteristics. Thanks to the interaction between the different components, the Two Dimension Pro system is one of the very latest evolutions in the world of soccer.
