World first for Heracles Almelo
Starting in the 2012-2013 season Heracles Almelo will be playing its home matches on an innovative synthetic turf pitch from TenCate, which is based on patented weaving technology. A number of new developments from TenCate have been combined in this synthetic turf pitch, resulting in optimal ball and playing performance. The system consists entirely of TenCate materials: synthetic turf fibres, backing fibres, infill and coating, and it is fully recyclable. This premier division club from Almelo has thus achieved a world first.
