Real Madrid opts again for Desso artificial turf pitches for its training centre

Leading training centre

In 2005, while building the training centre, Desso was selected to supply the artificial turf pitches.
The original pitches are being upgraded in 2 stages. The first three Desso pitches have been in use since early February. The existing pitches will be transferred to schools and clubs in the area.

Perfect pitches throughout the year
With the training centre, the club aims to create an ideal environment for both the first 11 under Manager José Mourinho, the reserve and youth teams.
To ensure that all of the teams get the training opportunities they require, the club must have continuous access to pitches that are in perfect condition.
By choosing a combination of natural, hybrid and 100% artificial pitches, all of the pitches stay in perfect condition regardless of the weather conditions and intensity of use. The Desso artificial pitches can be used much more intensively than natural grass. In this way, the other natural grass pitches suffer less and they, too, remain in optimum condition.

Keeping 17 teams satisfied
Paul Burgess, Grounds Manager Real Madrid: “In my time at Arsenal FC, I’d worked on projects with Desso already and was more than happy to continue that relationship at Real Madrid. We choose the new Desso iDNA grass. Not only does it provide a great playing surface, it also helps me to maintain the natural grass pitches in top condition. In this way, I can keep 17 teams happy.”
