3G Football Pitches

3G Football Pitch by Leisure Tech3G is short for third generation, an enhanced football pitch with an artificial grass surface.  Astroturf has many advantages, the ability to play in all weathers, no wear and tear and no maintenance.  It is ideal for community pitches, schools and grass roots clubs because the surface allows for training and play, all year round.

Facilities are able to save money on costly maintenance – pitch mowing, feeding, draining and watering.  They also save themselves the inconvenience of having to cancel winter matches due to freezing conditions.

October through to February is a lottery for struggling clubs.  With extensive flooding throughout the summer too, they end of with a backlog of fixtures.   A 3G pitch can offer a new lease of life.

Fake grass has come a very long way since it’s advent in the 1960’s.  Advances in technology means fibres are softer and non-abrasive; your skin won’t get burnt during a sliding tackle.  It in fact offers maximum comfort and enhanced play including great ball bounce, roll characteristics and control.  Most can be used with rubber studs too.

The FA has published a full guide for clubs considering an artificial pitch, containing all the information you need.  Download FA Guidelines
