Renewal principal sponsorship Heracles Almelo

TenCate has renewed its principal sponsorship of Heracles Almelo for two years, with the option of a third season. The sponsorship agreement was signed on the centre sport of the synthetic turf pitch in the Polman Stadium, following the game against SC Heerenveen on 19 March, which Heracles won.

TenCate has been the main sponsor of the Almelo professional football organization since 2003. Through its sponsorship of Heracles Almelo, TenCate seeks to boost the acceptance and installation of synthetic turf systems in professional football. Each year the club has the very best quality of synthetic turf available.

The Polman stadium functions as a showcase and field lab for TenCate, presenting the latest developments in synthetic turf. When it comes to the synthetic turf system of the future, consideration is being given to fibres that look even more natural and will even surpass the properties of natural grass. The system will be recyclable and thus exceptionally environment friendly.
