08 Jun Is Artificial Grass An Ideal Surface For Soccer?
Athletes around the world from all different sports have opinions about playing on different surfaces. You’d be hard-pressed to find that they all agree on one.
But as modern artificial turf use has started to grow across many sports, more and more players are finding it helps improve gameplay.
When it comes to soccer, what makes artificial grass a good surface for play? And why do soccer players like it?
They get more playing time
A considerable benefit for field managers is that artificial turf surfaces will withstand any weather. Rain delays can be demoralizing for players and upsetting to fans, so a synthetic turf surface, which won’t create mud puddles or stay saturated with moisture, is ideal for getting players back on the field faster.
They get a better choice of footwear
When you have a natural grass soccer field, players have to wear cleats in order to get enough grip. But with an artificial grass field, players can wear any type of footwear that they choose, making play more comfortable and versatile.
They like a flat surface
Soccer balls can lose momentum and direction if they hit a bump or rut caused by natural grass. With artificial turf, fields are always flat, and blades are always at a consistent height, as opposed to mowed grass. Balls can travel faster, passing is easier, and overall gameplay is enhanced.
They stay cleaner
Soccer players certainly aren’t opposed to getting dirty, but it can be frustrating to get caked in mud at the beginning of the game. With an artificial grass field, a drainage system will ensure that any liquids are quickly moved out of the area, ensuring that no mud ever forms.
They avoid exposure to chemicals
With all the potential falls in soccer, no player wants to be exposed to pesticides or weed killers. You’ll never need to use these chemicals with an artificial turf field, keeping everyone safer.
