We follow your passion for HOCKEY and dedicate ourselves to develop the GAME. Because we know “HOCKEY is more than a GAME”.

Hockey pitches may differ according to the artificial grass systems:

1- Unfilled or water-based - artificial fibres that densely packed for stabilisation require irrigation or watering to avoid pitch wear. The grass needs an underlay (prefabricated or in-situ shock pad). FIH calls such systems “ GLOBAL”

2- Dressed or sand-dressed - artificial fibres can be less densely packed and sand supports fibres in part of the pile depth. FIH calls such systems “NATIONAL”.

3- Filled or sand-filled - artificial fibres can be longer and less densely packed and sand supports the fibres for 100% of the pile depth. FIH calls such systems “MULTI-SPORT”.

The introduction of synthetic surfaces has significantly changed the sport of field hockey. Since its introduction in 1970s, competitions have been mostly played on artificial surfaces in Western countries. This has increased the speed of the game considerably, and changed the shape of hockey sticks to allow for different techniques, such as reverse stick trapping and hitting.
