Types of Artificial Grass Football Pitches

There are two predominant types of artificial grass sports pitches, 3G and 4G. The ‘G’ just stands for Generation with 3G composing of a rubber-crumb in-fill and 4G composing of a special curled ‘yarn’ that replaces the rubber-crumb element.

3G Football Pitches – Extreme

Our 3G artificial grass is called Extreme. It consists of a 50mm Pile Height and is installed with a rubber-crumb in-fill. The artificial grass is physically different from almost all of our other artificial grasses. It is manufactured in a completely different way so that it can hold an in-fill and provide a surface that acts like natural grass, but one which will last a lot higher footfall and in all weather.

Extreme is able to accurately replicate how a ball bounces on natural turf, and how players interact with the pitch in terms of running, changing direction and falling over.

4G Football Pitches – Stadia 24

Stadia 24 is an innovation in the artificial grass world. It builds on the 3G artificial grass technology and is able to create fantastic playing surfaces, without the need for a sand or rubber-crumb in-fill. It achieves this with it’s special curled yarn that replaces the rubber-crumb and produces the cushioning. Not having an in-fill means less maintenance, and players don’t need to worry about rubber-crumb particles.

Stadia 24 provides a maintenance free, all weather football pitch, with extremely high durability, whilst allowing for slide tackles and overhead kicks.

Sub Base

One of the most important parts of an artificial grass sports pitch is the quality of the sub base. This needs to be perfectly flat and stable. We use high quality MOT type 1 to ensure the creation of a solid sub base.

Is a DIY football pitch installation possible?

Yes, many of our customers have built DIY football pitches in their back gardens. Often this doesn’t necessarily involve ultra-secure surfacing or even a rubber-crumb in-fill. For DIY football pitches we recommend either Stadia 24, or even Pro Play. Pro Play is typically used in playgrounds and is not suitable for semi-professional sports pitches, however it is suitable for a small kick about in your back garden.
