Artificial Grass For Football Pitches

It’s the world’s most popular sport, and it’s being enjoyed by more and more people every single year. In fact, here in the UAE alone there are over 80,000 footballers playing the beautiful game at various levels. And they deserve to play on a beautiful surface.

Real grass pitches suffer from wear and tear, and become especially difficult to maintain to the standards required for competitive matches and regular training.

That’s why many of the world’s top football clubs have chosen artificial grass over its natural counterpart. Synthetic football turf has been given the thumbs up by the game’s governing body FIFA, and an increasing number of UEFA Champions League and Europa League matches take place on synthetic 3G football pitches every season.

Clubs who have installed artificial pitches are benefiting greatly; a synthetic turf can be used for more than 1 500 hours per season, compared to only 150 hours for real grass.


Installing an artificial football pitch in Dubai is good for the game, good for the environment, and good for business. Here’s why:

Low Maintenance, Low Cost

Keeping a natural grass football pitch playable is hard work. It requires a huge amount of time, energy, and money to ensure the pitch is fit for purpose.

Artificial grass on the other hand will require a minimal amount of maintenance to retain its quality. This level of maintenance is both affordable and effective, meaning fewer man hours spent tending to the pitch, and lower costs associated with labour, equipment, and water.

And while the initial outlay for the installation of an artificial football turf system will be higher than that of a real grass pitch, these costs will be offset by reducing the previously mentioned maintenance costs.

Improved Playing Conditions

Natural grass football pitches are unreliable. From divots and dust, to mud and water, there’s no shortage of issues that can lead to poor quality matches or cancelled training sessions.

So when it comes to a consistent footballing experience, artificial playing surfaces are the league leaders. They won’t succumb to weather damage, they are designed to drain excess water away to prevent waterlogged pitches, and they won’t freeze over. All of this means that, come rain or shine, your team can train hard and play hard all year round. Cancellations will finally be a thing of the past.

Increased Capacity

If you run a sports facility, then installing a durable artificial football pitch provides you with the same level of capacity as around three natural grass football pitches. This means the synthetic grass can withstand more football than real grass. More playable surfaces equates to more teams being able to play and more bookings being taken.

And with the durability and versatility of artificial grass pitches, you can increase revenue by hosting events such as live music without compromising the quality of the playing surface.

Westway Sports Centre
The Westway Sports Centre in west London is probably the busiest football centre in the country, with non stop use for over 12 hours each day. Already two football pitches had been worn out, the latter after only 7 years. Easigrass Sport was commissioned to replace the old surface and rubber pad with a new insitu rubber pad and Rhino-Turf VT50 surface. The resultant installation carried out by Sports Surface Solutions meets football standards and has already proven popular with local Premier League QPR and Division One Brentford, who both use the pitch for academy coaching.

Chelsea Football Club
We also installed an artificial football pitch at Chelsea Football Club Academy.

“A quick note to say how we appreciate the way your teams worked, both at Stamford Bridge and also the Academy training pitches at Cobham. They proved to be punctual, reliable and professional in their approach to the projects and a credit to Rhino-Turf.”

High Performance Sports Solutions from Easigrass

Our artificial turf systems are ideal for high performance football, and we’re confident they can outperform even the very best real grass football pitches.

The artificial pitch we provide is specifically designed for a fast‐paced high impact sport such as football. The synthetic grass is soft, and thanks to a shock pad layer beneath the pitch we can significantly reduce the likelihood of impact injuries during a game.

We also understand that some people are put off by the possibility of skin abrasions when sliding into tackles or diving to make saves. That’s why we always use long pile artificial grass to minimise the friction and mimic the feeling of natural grass.
