Desso GrassMaster, the hybrid grass system

The Desso GrassMaster system contributes to the success of stadiums, professional training centers and tournaments at the highest level.

The Desso GrassMaster- system is made up of a 100 % natural grass surface, into which 20 million artificial turf fibres have been injected to  a depth of 20 cm. The roots of the natural grass intertwine with the artificial fibres, which anchors the field into a stable and a level grass surface.

The grass system has already proven its reliability at the highest level; Arsenal FC, Liverpool, Tottenham Hotspur, Manchester City,  VfL Wolfsburg, AZ Alkmaar, RSC Anderlecht, Mbombela and Peter Mokaba ( both World Cup Football 2010  stadiums ). Shaktar Donetsk and Kharkov ( both Euro 2012 stadiums) play on a Desso GrassMaster system in their stadiums. Since its installation at Wembley stadium, the stadium can fulfil its role as multi-functional stadium again on a perfect pitch.

Desso GrassMaster has also been used successfully for both rugby and American Football, including top clubs such as American National Football League’s Denver Broncos, Green Bay Packers and rugby stadiums of Newlands ( South Africa) and Dunedin ( New Zealand – WC Rugby 2011)
