Professional water-based synthetic turf system offers the optimal playing surface for field hockey stadium in Malaysia.
Hockey players at Stadium Hoki MBPJ, Petaling Jaya, now have one of the top quality hockey pitches in the world, certified to FIH Global as an elite level playing surface.
The new synthetic turf was part of a series of upgrades at MBPJ Stadium, which also included 706 new stadium seats, building enhancements, and new mechanical pumps. All upgrades have been monitored by the Malaysian Hockey Federation to ensure the stadium is on par with international standards.
The hockey pitch was expertly installed by SportsTech Pro, based in Kuala Lumpur. The company removed the existing surface, and prepared and installed an in-situ shockpad and synthetic turf on-site. The pitch features Act Global’s Xtreme Turf NFH13-MF, a professional, water-based hockey system. The system includes advanced texturized fibre technology and glass-reinforced primary for a highly durable surface. The water layer helps lower friction to create a flat, fast pitch for high speed of play. A short, dense turf pile gives excellent traction and surface stability to enhance player footing, stick movements and ball roll for a technically accurate game.
The system has been certified to FIH Global level, which indicates it is suitable for International and Olympic Level play.
As a preferred FIH Supplier, Act Global is committed to working with the FIH to grow the game of hockey and provide top-quality pitches around the world. The initiative is aimed at ensuring good quality hockey fields are built for all levels of play. By providing consistent and dependable standards for hockey turf installations worldwide, the program will promote player welfare and protect the investment of those funding hockey facilities.
