Fantasy Football – Types of Football Pitch Surfaces

There are different types of surfaces that fantasy football clubs could choose for their pitch. The decision as to which surface to select can depend on the level of play, surface preference, budget as well as the capability to use for other sports. 

The surfaces available for fantasy premier league pitches can be broken down into three main categories: 

Hybrid Turf 

Hybrid surfaces enable play at the highest tier of fantasy football league games at 11Wickets App for Android/iOS. They combine the positive properties of natural grass with the strength and durability of artificial grass. A hybrid surface will provide a more durable surface than the natural grass alternative and will accommodate more playing hours. However, if you want to use your pitch extensively throughout the week for pitch hire and community use a 3G artificial pitch would be a more suitable, cost-effective option. 

Natural Grass 

Many professional stadiums are required to have a natural grass or hybrid pitch in order for them to be able to compete at the level they do. Natural grass pitches can vary in quality depending on how they are constructed, and the type of seed used, they are ideal for football but can limit fixtures compared to synthetic and hybrid grass as they are reliant on weather conditions as well as extensive maintenance. As well as being synthetic sports specialists we have experts in agronomy who can install and ensure the growth of natural turf for sport.  

Artificial Turf 

Many football clubs opt for artificial surfaces whether it be for their stadium pitch or training facilities. In the English Football, clubs are not permitted to have artificial pitches in their stadiums but can train on them. Many clubs below this level will select artificial surfaces to maximize their playing hours. In Scotland however, clubs at all level of the game are permitted to play on artificial pitches. The types of artificial surfaces for football can be broken down into the following categories: 

– Tufted Pitches- Traditional artificial pitches are manufactured by a process known as tufting, the yarn is punched through a backing membrane and held in place with a special coating. Tufted products can meet the needs of both clubs and educational facilities at an affordable price 

– Woven Pitches- The turf fibres remain upright resulting in the best ball and playing characteristics for rugby and football. In contrast to standard tufted carpets, the weaving process brings together the pile and backing yarns to form the woven turf, offering unrivalled strength and stability.
