Try an Artificial Grass Pitch Before You Buy

Wednesday, March 19th, 2014

To promote the use of artificial grass pitches, Lucozade Powerleague in conjunction with the Football Association are offering a special deal to all FA leagues and clubs.  A two hours for the price of one deal is available for play on their all-weather 3G artificial pitches at weekends.

The offer was announced after weeks and weeks of rain has prevented participation.  Resulting in the cancellation of large numbers of fixtures, costing grass roots clubs thousands.

Powerleague are the champions of 5-a-side football.  They are the largest pitch provider in the UK, with over 470  for hire, used by over 130,000 players every week.

Participation in small-sided football has officially overtaken 11-a-side, with some 4 million people enjoying the smaller game.  Ideally small-sided football should be played on a hard surface indoors.  When this isn’t available a synthetic pitch is recommended because of the fast-paced nature of the sport, natural grass should be avoided.

There are 38 participating Powerleague centres across the country.  Each offers a 5-a-side and 7-a-side pitch, and six also have indoor soccer domes.  The pitches use state of the art rubber crumb astro turf with an advanced purpose built drainage system.  The offer will run for the next few weeks and is subject to availability, 11-a-side is not available.

If you’re frustrated with the weather, why not give it a try?  All facilities have free parking, quality changing and shower areas, and licensed bars.  Book your session
