Last month, the “Vicente Del Bosque” football field in Spain received the FIFA 2-star quality certification for synthetic turf. This football pitch is part of the Ciutat Esportiva Camilo Cano located in La Nucia, near Alicante in Spain.
This high qualification awarded by FIFA has only been given to three synthetic turf pitches throughout Spain. To receive this certification, the “Vicente Del Bosque” football field passed a quality audit performed by a laboratory approved by FIFA. Indeed, the Institute of Biomechanics of Valencia (IBV), which is one of the few laboratories approved by FIFA worldwide, performed during a day various quality tests (ball-surface and player-surface interaction). As the test results were very positive, IBV sent a report to FIFA, which assessed it and issued the 2-star certification.
As a result, the awarded certificate was delivered on the 20th of February to Sergio Villalba, sports Councillor at the town of La Nucia. “The award of this FIFA two star certificate is excellent news for football, for the Ciutat Esportiva Camilo Cano and local sports in general. It is a global distinction to certify that our “Vicente del Bosque” synthetic turf football fields are of the highest quality. This leap in quality increases the attraction power of our sports complex. This means that from now on any international football match of any category could be played on our pitch”, said Sergio Villalba.
