January is a great month for Desso. Two major nationals competitions, one in Rwanda and another in Colombia host games on several Desso artificial turf pitches. Both countries selected the unique X-shaped fiber technology, a serie known in the industry for its durability and natural playing experience.
Desso Sports: we are delighted that this trend continues and tournaments such as CHAN 2016 and Pony Futbol prefer to play on Desso iDNA-X (Smart). The stadiums will benefit from the installations as the possibilities of the iDNA-X artificial grass are unlimited.
Together with PSports Systems, Desso was able to successfully install the artificial pitch at the ‘Atanasio Girordot’ Stadium. The venue hosts the widly popular Pony Futbol contest. Pony Futbol is a national tournament where the best youth soccer teams, under the age of 13, compete against each other. According to broadcaster Telemedellin, 261 players have reached the professional ranks after playing in Pony Futbol.
As for CHAN 2016, Desso Sports has installed 4 full size fields that equal 36.000m2 in Rwanda. In particular 'Kigali Regional Stadium' - 'Umuganda Stadium and its training field' - 'Huye Stadium' and the 'Mumena Stadium'. On January 10th, the turf technology has been tested during a friendly match in the Umuganda Stadium. First impressions: Great field, great stadium, ideal for top football! The artificial turf technology was selected by the evaluation committee of Rwanda State as by far the most complete system in terms of turf quality and drainage capacity.
