Blacktown Soccer gains FIFA certification.


Blacktown Soccer Facility, Eastern Road, Rooty Hill, NSW.

Blacktown City Council’s new international standard synthetic turf soccer pitch has been certified to FIFA 2 STAR.

Council awarded the $700,000 design and construct project to Turf One who completed the work in December 2011. It is the first synthetic soccer pitch built for the Council.

The porous base for the new field consists of deep layers of recycled aggregates. More than 3,000 tonnes of crushed bricks were used in the construction of the base. Compacted and laser levelled to fine tolerances this base provides a flat even playing surface that drains efficiently even during the heaviest downpours.

The playing performance of the FieldTurf synthetic surface has been remarked upon by many players who say it infinitely superior to other synthetic surfaces installed in the Sydney metropolitan area.
FieldTurf is 100% recyclable.
