16 October 2009.
S-League (Singapore League) fans are delighted with
the new artificial football pitch manufactured by GreenFields. This
FIFA funded project at Jalan Besar Stadium started in December 2008
and was completed after three months. In addition to the Football
Turf installation, new floodlights were erected to improve the
quality of television broadcasting for evening matches.
The 2 star FIFA rating at Jalan Besar Stadium is the
first of its kind in Asia and allows the football pitch to be used
for international matches. One of the most famous games played on a
FIFA approved pitch was Russia versus England at the Luzhniki
Stadium in Euro 2008.
Artificial turf was traditionally viewed as inferior
to natural grass due to an unrealistic surface and the increased
possibility of player injury. In recent years, technology advances
have resulted in a third generation artificial turf that provides a
professional quality playing surface now accepted by football
associations around the world.
The new Jalan Besar pitch replaces the old artificial turf laid
three years ago. The Singapore national Under-16 coach Raja
Suriamurthi commented in an interview with The New Paper, 鈥淭he key
complaint of the previous pitch was the lack of cushioning. Now,
it鈥檚 close to grass. The cushioning is much better鈥? This Singapore
newspaper went on to describe the new artificial turf as a 鈥減erfect
pitch鈥?admired by spectators and players. S-League CEO Winston Lee
also commented that the 2 star rated FIFA Football Turf is A-Class.
