"The pitch is the workplace of our team and deserves utmost attention. With the Desso GrassMaster system, we expect to further improve the quality of the pitch."

High-tech hybrid grass system for VfL Wolfsburg

German champion Vfl Wolfsburg plays on a Desso GrassMaster natural grass system in their Volkswagen Arena. This makes Wolfsburg the first professional club in Germany since the foundation of DFL (Deutsche Fußball Liga) to take this innovative path.

VfL Wolfsburg takes the lead

By choosing the Desso GrassMaster system, VfL Wolfsburg makes another solid investment to expand its stadium infrastructure. Felix Magath, Managing Director and Head Coach at the time of installation of the Desso GrassMaster system said: "Our goal is to achieve excellence in all areas. The pitch is the workplace of our team and deserves utmost attention. With the Desso GrassMaster system, we expect to further improve the quality of the pitch. We want to play offensive and attack quickly. A perfect pitch is therefore essential.

Investing in top quality sports infrastructure

VfL Wolfsburg follows the trend of international top clubs: they make a long-term investment in a hybrid natural grass system. Regarding this, Thomas Franke, Head Organisation and Stadium Activities at VfL Wolfsburg, says: "By reinforcing the pitch with artificial grass fibres we obtain a durable field, with better sliding characteristics and an optimal drainage. We expect an optimal playing capacity throughout the whole season, no matter what the weather conditions. An extensive and expensive relaying of the turf during the season won’t be necessary anymore."

In the meantime, VFL Wolfsburg has two replicas of the Desso GrassMaster pitch at their training centre.
