Swansea.com Stadium

In the summer of 2019 South Wales Sports Grounds (SWSG) were commissioned to replace the existing surface inside the Swansea.com Stadium, Swansea City AFC’s main pitch. The existing Hybrid system had been in place for 8 seasons and was in need of an upgrade. Alongside Support in Sport (SIS), SWSG removed the existing stitched makeup, rootzone and base sand and replaced with a new stitched and natural grass combo providing a technologically advanced, reinforced turf system.

Utilising LPS positional accuracy the pitch was re-laid to a domed shape enabling excellent surface drainage and prime stadium viewing conditions.

With a stitching and growing in period well managed by all parties, the surface was playable again before the first game of the 2019-2020 season.

“I would just like to say the service and support I’ve had off South Wales Sports Grounds is nothing but the best, all staff are very supportive, friendly and work with you at all time. I would highly recommend to anyone who’s interested in improving they’re facilities and taking things to the next level.”
