FC Porto trains on FIFA Two Star Certified Desso artificial turf

The CTFD PortoGaia, where the players of FC Porto base their training sessions, includes five training grounds, of which four with natural grass and one with Desso iDNA synthetic grass. FCP chose Desso turf because the company develops its products in cooperation with Ghent University. Desso iDNA is tested in a ‘real-life’ test centre, where the playing characteristics of artificial turf on a real playing field can be screened scientifically.

Tested in the lab and on the pitch

The playing characteristics are also tested on the pitch. The training ground was tested by FIFA and Desso and was granted a FIFA Two Star Certificate. RED, who installed the Desso field, already knew it would be an artificial pitch of the best quality, since the same product was used during a FIFA U-17 World Cup semi-final in Estadio Omnilife (Mexico).

Desso iDNA: the standard in synthetic turf


Desso iDNA combines the resilience of multi-shaped yarns with the durability of single-shaped yarns. With its consistent playing characteristics, improved turn and offset capability, optimal shock absorption and excellent ball roll and ball bounce, Desso iDNA is ideal for top level training sessions.
