Natural Turf Football Pitches
The majority of competitive football is played on natural turf pitches provided by a wide range of stakeholders from private ownership to schools and Local Authorities.
The current quality of natural turf pitches varies throughout the country. Improvements to the stock of grass pitches are essential to ensure as many players as possible have the opportunity to play on a defined standard for playing surfaces.
Durham FA have joined with The FA Facilities & Investment Team and Institute of Groundmanship to develop a grass pitch maintenance service which can be utilised by our clubs and their facility providers, with the simple aim of improving the quality of grass pitches.
The key principles behind the programme are to provide clubs and their pitch providers with expert advice and practical solutions for developing and maintaining their grass pitches and improving playing surfaces across the county.
