The football club Hooglanderveen, located in Amersfoort, Netherlands installed the newest generation of football turf from ACT Global Sports. This Xtreme Turf exceeds other synthetic turf systems in the market with its unique combination of top stadium-level performance and a new level of durability.

Both the performance and durability are proven as the installed system meets the top two-star performance requirements of the FIFA Quality Concept. Additionally, the artificial grass fibers have been tested to 50,000 Lisport cycles which represent intense use over multiple years.

The field was installed by De Ridder BV in Soesterberg in partnership with ACT Global Sports, a FIFA Preferred Producer for Football Turf. Hooglanderveen Stadium was tested by ISA Sport, a world renowned, Dutch-based testing institution. In addition to the top football performance and durability, the Xtreme Turf was selected due to the combination of quicker grass pile recovery to avoid matting down with low skin abrasion.

Wil Ditzel, Director of ACT Global comments, "It is a great honor to work with this club in achieving this stadium-level performance while meeting their high demands for a system that can withstand intense use. The research and science behind the turf makes for a great surface for the football players. Plus, we are receiving fantastic feedback on how great our grass looks with our unique fresh green colour combination."

The demand for Xtreme Turf continues to rise globally along with the requirements of the marketplace. Locally, ACT Global has already begun working on their next installation with Football Club AZSV in Aalten, The Netherlands, close to their sales office and production facility.
