Pt. Motilal Nehru Sports Stadium Selects World Class FieldTurf Synthetic Hockey Turf
Uttar Pradesh, India

FieldTurf Tarkett India, the country's leader in artificial grass and sports surfaces has been chosen to supply and install world class FieldTurf synthetic hockey turf for the Pt. Motilal Nehru Sports Stadium at Rae Bareli, Uttar Pradesh. The turf is likely to be ready for play by the end of summer.

FieldTurf is the undisputed world leader in artificial turf, having invented new generation artificial grass while continuously setting new standards for safety, performance, and durability.

"We are happy that the UP government has selected our world-class hockey turf to be installed in their stadium," stated Mr. Anil Kumar, Director, FieldTurf Tarkett India. "This is the same product that was used for field hockey at the Athens Olympics in 2004. We are confident that the new surface will be a tremendous benefit to hockey enthusiasts and enable them to train and compete on the world's best hockey surface."

FieldTurf is an International Hockey Federation (FIH) approved supplier. The FIH requires the use of approved surfaces for specific international tournaments and maintains performance and test requirements for synthetic turf pitches. FieldTurf meets and exceeds these requirements.

Last year, FieldTurf Tarkett India installed FieldTurf artificial grass for the Salt Lake football stadium in Kolkata (the second largest stadium in the world) and is currently used for I-League matches as well as the recent IFA Shield tournament.
