Allianz Park turf laid

Posted on: 23 November 2012

Work continues to finish the artificial turf pitch at Allianz Park.

With the surface now in place, work has started on the rubber and sand infill on the pitch and as you can see from the photos below, one small section has already been completed to give an idea of what the artificial turf pitch will be like when work has been finished.

The blue artificial turf that will frame the playing surface is also now in place.

Saracens will become the first professional rugby union club in the world to play on entirely artificial turf, promoting a faster, safer and more entertaining game, and the four metre-wide strips continue to be laid.

Allianz Park will be officially opened on Saturday 16 February, 2013, when Saracens play a Premiership match against Exeter Chiefs.
