It has been another busy summer at Anfield after the completion of the new Main Stand last year and the Reds are now preparing themselves to play their 2017-18 English Premier League (EPL) and European campaigns on a brand new GrassMaster pitch.
The Reds will indeed play their home games on a brand new surface. The last installation of a GrassMaster pitch at Anfield was 16 years ago. The hybrid system offers a uniform and visually attractive surface with a proven lifespan of more than 15 years. Natural grass roots grow around the PP fibres, thus anchoring the field and ensuring an always even and stable surface. This results in a consistent playing surface with outstanding stability, a perfect fit for a club looking to play long EPL and Champions League campaigns.
Liverpool FC have also used this technology during the last seasons at the Melwood Training Ground.
GrassMaster provides a perfect hybrid playing surface worldwide
GrassMaster has proven itself at renowned events such as the FIFA World Cup (South Africa 2010, Brazil 2014, Russia 2018), Rugby World Cup (New Zealand2011, UK 2015), UEFA European Championships (Portugal 2004, Ukraine 2012, France 2016) and the Olympic Games (Athens 2004, London 2012, Rio 2016).
In addition to Liverpool FC, many other top-flight international clubs, such as Arsenal FC, Manchester City, Manchester United, Paris Saint-Germain, FC Barcelona, Chelsea, Inter and AC Milan, as well as King Abdullah Stadium in Saudi Arabia, New England Patriots NFL and Wembley Stadium, have all chosen the GrassMaster system.
