Pt. Motilal Nehru Stadium gets World-Class Fieldturf Hockey Turf
Rai Bareily, Uttar Pradesh, India, Friday, December 24, 2010 -- (Business Wire India) -- The synthetic hockey turf supplied and installed last month by FieldTurf Tarkett India at Pt. Motilal Nehru stadium in Rae Bareilly, UP has been approved to host the highest level of hockey competitions by the International hockey Federation (FIH), the world governing body for hockey.
This artificial turf field provides a great opportunity to nurture local talent. The turf was manufactured by FieldTurf, the world leader in artificial turf, which has previously supplied & installed similar hockey turf surfaces for major events such as the Athens Olympics.
Elaborate field tests were conducted almost immediately following the installation of the turf by an FIH accredited laboratory. The field tests gauged the quality of the surface using key performance indicators such as Ball Rebound, Ball Roll and Pitch Run-off, among many others.
Mr. Anil Kumar, Managing Director, FieldTurf Tarkett India, thanked the UP Sports Department and UP Awas Evam Vikas Parishad for the opportunity to provide the world-class product. "We are confident that this investment by the government will pay significant dividends over many years for regular usage as well as tournament play at every level."
Mr. Rupesh Tikku, National Sales Manager said, "This solidifies our position as the #1 provider of innovative sports surfacing technologies and high quality products in India. Earlier this year, Salt Lake stadium's FieldTurf artificial grass for football achieved FIFA 2 Star certification - the highest rating awarded by FIFA. Our other sports turf installations include the very first artificial turf football field in the SAARC region at Chowgule College, Goa, which has been in use for over 5 years. We are currently installing a similar field in Aizawl for the Government of Mizoram".
