Dan Shemesh, Director of Stadium and Training Grounds for the New York Red Bulls has praised the SISIS Osca 3 which maintains the synthetic turf on one of the club’s training fields.
William Watson, head groundsman at Hamilton Academical FC, believes that his SISIS Osca has helped the synthetic pitch at the Superseal Stadium stand up to the rigours of an extensive amount of playing time.
St Georges Park, the FA's National Football Centre, was recently awarded the Institute of Groundsmanship's (IOG) Best Maintained Artificial Pitch of the Year. It was a great achievement for head groundsman Alan Ferguson and his team, who have acknowledged the SISIS Osca as being integral to winning the award.
A new 3G sports surface has given a tremendous boost to students at Brookfield Community College near Chesterfield, Derbyshire and to the community as a whole. The FIFA one star Domo Sports Grass surface was part-funded by the Football Foundation and completed last summer.
A synthetic playing surface often gets more use than a natural one. It is therefore imperative that Groundsmen should have a regular brushing programme, suitable for the area and usage. A programme of light brush between play, and now and again a more intense brushing to stand the pile or fibre up, is recommended.
