The power of synthetic turf: unlimited play
The Netherlands is fully covered in snow, still the pitch at Heracles Almelo offers perfect play! The snow is removed and the field is now ready for regular training schedules and matches. Even for other professional clubs, the stadium is currently used for training and league games. ️
Jan Willem van Dop, Director Go Ahead Eagles explains: “Our training pitch is unplayable and our main pitch would be condemned because of the snow, so we had to look for another location to train and play matches this week.”
“The pressure on this football season is great”, says Rob Toussaint, Director of Heracles. “We still have many games to go and there is no room in the programme to catch up. I immediately welcomed the other clubs that called me and asked if our facility was available for their first team.”
Van Dop described the field at Heracles as being perfect. “I know this sounds weird, because we love natural grass, but this new generation of synthetic turf in Almelo is the best synthetic option available”.
