Four synthetic turf pitches to be installed at new training facility AZ Alkmaar with TenCate Grass components

This summer, the Dutch football club AZ Alkmaar will have 4 new pitches installed at their new training facility. These pitches are going to be constructed with the synthetic turf fibres and primary backing of TenCate Grass.
In these new pitches, the latest shock pad, TenCate Sine® will be installed under the top layer. This innovative shock pad, developed by TenCate strengthens the playing characteristics and is easier on joints and muscles. TenCate Sine® also ensures a longer life of the overall system in that it is very durable, gives stability and reduces the wear and tear of the pitch.

Innovative shock pad combined with new features and applications

Work is already well underway, the construction of the facility started on June 9th. “Soon, here we can assist and develop our players even better,” said AZ’s Director General Affairs, Robert Eenhoorn on that occasion. “We can train our talents with the most innovative services and applications.”
The facility is not based in the city of Alkmaar itself, but in the neighboring town of Wormerveer. AZ wants to underline that they want to be a club for the entire region.

First youth, then A-selection

After the summer, the ultra-modern training facility will be the home of the entire youth of AZ Alkmaar. The first team of the football club will train here as well, once the main building, offices and other training facilities are finished.
