"The time when artificial grass was considered to be an inferior alternative to natural grass is far beyond us. (...) To be honest, it is beyond our wildest expectations"
Guy De Smet, Youth Division Eendracht Aalst

Eendracht Aalst invests in youth training with synthetic turf

"Since a couple of years our club strongly invests in youth training of the best quality. As part of the individual development of our young players and a smooth transfer to the first eleven, we had to fulfil a couple of preconditions. We want to train our young football players in the best possible environment. The most important precondition is without doubt a good playing surface. And we have that now. To be honest, it is beyond our wildest expectations," admits Guy De Smet of Eendracht Aalst Youth Division.

International youth tournament on artificial grass

De Smet: "We are convinced that our synthetic turf pitch will also appeal to international youth clubs. Each year we host an international youth tournament (ITEA). Young players of clubs like Tottenham Hotspur, Manchester City, Sevilla, Inter Milaan,... come down to Aalst to give their very best. That certainly won't be a problem on our synthetic turf pitch."

Less maintenance, less costs

"Artificial grass is very maintenance friendly. It is unnecessary to seed, mow, fertilise,... That way we can cut the costs," says De Smet. With Desso D-Vision, Eendracht Aalst has a high quality synthetic grass system. De Smet: "The time when artificial grass was considered to be an inferior alternative to natural grass is far beyond us."
