AC and Inter Milan play on hybrid grass in San Siro

Two Italian top clubs, AC and Inter Milan, play their home matches on a natural grass pitch reinforced by artificial fibres. The San Siro Stadium and the training centres of both clubs are equipped with Desso GrassMaster.

Iconic “temple of football” with high-tech pitch

The 80.000 seat stadium is one of the most emblematic stadiums in the world, named after Italian football legend Guiseppe Meazza. One of the unique aspects of the stadium is to be found in the special roof construction, covering all stands. Such a construction requires a high-tech grass system. The Desso GrassMaster hybrid system consists of a 100 % natural grass pitch into which artificial fibres are injected 20 cm deep, every 2 cm across the pitch. This results in approximately 20 million artificial fibres, reinforcing the natural grass pitch.

Ingenuity to be found below the surface

The ingenuity of the system is to be found below the surface. The natural grass roots grow around the artificial fibres, thus anchoring the field. The system offers stability and reinforcement, ensuring a uniform surface in perfect condition at all times. Thanks to the protecting artificial fibres, the natural grass can recover faster, which will be an important benefit for San Siro. In addition to hosting the home matches of both AC and Inter Milan, the stadium is also the scene of events and concerts.
