Multifunctionality of synthetic turf in Kadan, Czech Republic
Thanks to the support and funding by ROP Northwest and the City of Kadan, the community in the Czech Republic got a multipurpose field with synthetic grass surface in 2012. The local football club Tatran Kadan got a permission to hold Championship Games in the 3rd Division of the national league. A gift of CZK 25,000 for the development of youth football in the town was given to the club at the opening of the pitch.
About ten football teams train and play on the pitch. In agreement with the football club the pitch is also used by the field hockey section of the club as well as for a street soccer league and for school tournaments. Apart from the synthetic turf the instalment also brought the opening of a diverse ‘leisure centre’, that enriches the whole community.
