Vincent Kompany, Captain Manchester City; Desso GrassMaster is becoming a premium standard in the sports industry. We, players, are excited to play and train on such a high level, consistent and durable playing surface.

 

63,000 m2 high level, consistent and durable playing fields for professional performance

With the opening of the 80-acre City Football Academy in Manchester, the Academy improves the grassroots football infrastructure. Linked to the Etihad by a bridge, the CFA is a multi-sport facility and rehabilitation center that empowers a sustainable future.

After successful experience on the Desso GrassMaster system at the Etihad Stadium, the Academy chose to go for Desso again. Desso Sports installed 30.000 m2 of its reinforced natural grass, Desso GrassMaster and an additional 33,000 m2 of its latest artificial turf technology - Desso iDNA X. Desso's reinforced grass system is no longer only used within a stadium environment but also as an ideal training surface such as the CFA.

The partnership between MCFC and Desso Sports regarding both match and training pitches, enables young talent and the first team to perform on state-of-the-art pitches, regardless of weather conditions or intensity of use.

Jon Stemp, Chief Infrastructure Officer Manchester City: “The City Football Academy is the result of years of research from different sports organisations across the world. Desso Sports share our commitment to innovation and were the obvious choice as market leader in pitch technology."
