IMPORTANT RECOGNITION FOR ARTIFICIAL SPORTS TURF SYSTEM MONDOTURF 4NX
ANOTHER MONDOTURF ARTIFICIAL SOCCER FIELD HAS BEEN CERTIFIED FIFA 2 STAR.
Mar 6, 2015
The artificial turf football pitch Vicente del Bosque, La Nucia, near Alicante in Spain, has been certified FIFA 2 Star. The installed system is Mondoturf NSF Monofibre 4NX 16 60 AS.
The artificial turf football pitch has successfully passed the tests carried out by FIFA, satisfying the requirements of the FIFA Quality Programme. This program provides an industry standard internationally recognized for quality and reliability in the areas that most affect a player: the equipment, the surface, the technology and services used for the game. The goal of the program is to improve the game and protect the players, clubs and associations endorsing only products that meet the highest standards of safety and quality. If a product is tested and the test results are consistent with all standards, the product can be certified and receive one of the FIFA quality marks.
There are two levels of FIFA certification for artificial football fields. The first level, FIFA 1 Star, is intended primarily for recreational use, community and municipal fields. However, before getting even only the first degree of certification, it is necessary that the field exceeds a series of tests imposed by FIFA. FIFA 2 Star certification is to ensure that an artificial field fully reflects the standards of playability of a professional football. FIFA and UEFA finals can only be played on FIFA 2 Star fields. The development of this second standard is therefore intended to meet the most stringent requirements of professional football and to ensure the highest levels of play and safety for athletes that use the field.
