Artificial Turf Pitches

Replacing or developing an artificial turf pitch?

Synthetic playing surfaces are still popular choices for clubs in certain sports, especially during the wet winter months. 

If you’re thinking of replacing or developing an artificial turf pitch, then it’s important you read this which outlines a collaborative approach that is being adopted across Wales.

The governing bodies of three sports in Wales – football, hockey and rugby – have joined forces, together with Sport Wales, to work together on a project to provide improved artificial playing surfaces across Wales.

Priority zones or hot spots have been identified for the development of artificial pitches and funding provided by Sport Wales will help deliver a more fit for purpose facilities landscape. Other funding streams are also highlighted in the plan.

Your requirements may not meet those set out in the guidance but, don’t worry, all is not lost.  Sport Wales’ funding pages will provide you with further information and ideas on where to raise money for your development.
