Flying High In Bolivia – Rekortan Synthetic Surface

Estadio Hernando Siles in La Paz is the legendary football stadium with a running track, in which is located 3,627 metres above sea level. 

The Estadio Hernando Siles was named after the Bolivian president from 1926 to 1930. Organisers chose a classic brick red for the colour of the running track, because it is in perfect harmony with the historical setting of the stadium, which dates all the way back to 1931.

German World Cup success on Polytan Synthetic Turf

After the national team coached by Joachim Löw went out of the FIFA World Cup in Russia, German football fans finally have reason to celebrate! Germany have become the small-sided football world champions in Lisbon. In an exciting final on 29 September, Germany won the game 1-0 against Poland. This was enough to put the coveted World Cup trophy into German hands on the city’s most famous square, the “Praça do Comércio.”

Soccer World Cup Stadium in Lisbon

Socca World Cup Stadium

The final like all other matches was played on “LigaTurf Socca” synthetic turf by Polytan. This surface was specifically created for the World Cup of the International Socca Federation (ISF).

This gives us double cause to celebrate! Firstly, the players on the small-sided game helped Germany become world champions. Secondly, the sensational success in Portugal was also achieved on a Polytan synthetic turf. We congratulate the national team and its coach Malte Froehlich on their magnificent title win and we are looking forward to further exciting games in the future.

Like the robust, easy-care LigaTurf Cross, the LigaTurf Socca synthetic turf combines smooth and textured filaments to deliver the best of both worlds. The exclusive look of the 47 x 28 m large mini pitch on the “Praça do Comércio” in Lisbon came from its unique colour scheme. All smooth fibres are green and all the textured ones are blue. This helped the playing surface become an unmistakable trademark of the Socca World Cup 2018 in Lisbon.
