Maidstone United, a football club based in Kent, UK, has just gained promotion to English football’s Conference South while playing on a synthetic turf pith at their home ground. To add to that promotion, the club has also benefitted from the Football Conference’s decision to allow games to be played on synthetic turf. This is good news for Maidstone as they will be able to keep their current playing surface while entering the Football Conference next season. The club is currently growing and is foreseeing a sustainable future after many ups and downs in the past, thanks notably to many benefits brought by their synthetic turf field.
