All Weather Football

The centre piece of the Southern Cross Football Centre is the synthetic grass pitch. The synthetic area covers 116.6m x 78.9m to inside edge of spoon drain. The full-sized pitch is marked to FIFA international pitch standard (105m x 68m playing field).

The synthetic surfacing system is called LigaTurf Premier R-RS Re-Creation and consists of a synthetic grass surface which is in-filled with sand & rubber granule for stability, performance and durability.

The pitch is fully fenced, has match lighting to 200 lux and includes an innovative retractable netting system installed by Leading Edge Netting which enables the full field to be reconfigured into a range of self contained netting zones to incorporate 5-a-side, 6-a-side and 8-a-aside match pitches.

These features combined with excellent drainage and site preparation ensure a perfect surface in all weather conditions.

Footwear and Equipment

As a synthetic Football Pitch not equipment can be used that can potentially damage the surface.

This means that flexi poles, post anchors etc., using spikes that are usually used on grass surfaces, are not suitable for use on the synthetic surface and are strictly prohibited.

However a range of specialist equipment is available for use on request.

In terms of footwear the use of normal football boots is encouraged however metal studded boots are also strictly prohibited.
