3G PITCH FAW_WFT NATIONAL DEVELOPMENT CENTRE
The 3G pitch was constructed as part of the overall project awarded to SWSGL to create the playing facilities for the new National Development Centre at the Newport International Sports Village. In addition to the 3G pitch we are constructing a Fibre Sand ‘Stadium’ Pitch for 1st Team Training and a second natural grass pitch for Under 21’s and the Development Squads.
The base is engineered with porous subbase, lateral drainage and a porous macadam control layer. In addition a perimeter footpath, spectator rail, 100 person stand and ball stop fence were installed. The 3G surface is a 40mm shortpile surface laid on a prefabricated shock pad to enable it to achieve the FIFA Two Star Quality Concept. It has an 8 column floodlight system.
