Introducing…….Poligras Tokyo GT!

 

A SUSTAINABLE REVOLUTION IN HOCKEY

With new Poligras Tokyo GT hockey turf, Polytan is bringing to the market the first synthetic turf which features filaments made from over 60% regrowable raw materials.

Polytan is using BioBased PE to add a sustainable dimension to the outstanding playing properties of its tried-and-tested polyurethane monofilament fibres.

The Poligras Tokyo GT turf structure is specifically adapted to the Bio Based PE formula, enabling dynamic and precise playability.

Patented Entanglement technology in the filaments means the multi directional surface remains stable in the long term and is protected against premature wear.

Polytan’s CoolPlus technology ensures the turf stays cool even on hot days. The pigments on the surface of the turf fibres reflect the infrared part of solar radiation, whilst PreciTex process engineering guarantees the turf’s uniform colour.

Hockey In Dry Climates

The FIH Men’s Hero Asian Champions Trophy was played in Mucat, Oman. Oman is sunny all year round and has a minimal amount of rainfall. This location can reach hot temperatures of 38 degrees Celsius and in winter has a daily average temperature of only 20 degreees Celsius.

Countries with very hot climates and low rainfall may have limited economical resources and water restrictions in places such as Indonesia, India and Kenya. These countries can have limited water resources and restrictions on the use of irrigation systems. Poligras H2OZ COOLplus is the best Polytan hockey surface, especially for dry climates in the middle east, Asia and Australia. The durable sand dressed system is cost efficient and allows for excellent ball roll across the synthetic turf surface.

The exclusive fibres help players change direction, slow down and take off! Studies show the artificial grass surface temperatures for COOLplus are 10-20% cooler than other competitive systems, which is why this product is ideal for hot and dry environments. Poligras H2OZ COOLplus is a world class hockey surface meeting FIH (International Hockey Federation) requirements.

Multi sport hockey fields are becoming more popular, as the field allows for greater sport playability. Multi purpose fields are a cost-effective way to create one central location with many sporting options for the local community.

Polytan service the middle east and have suitable systems for hockey in dry environments. Polytan have a global reach with a local presence.

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.

2018 SOCCA WORLD CUP IN LISBON: POLYTAN SYNTHETIC TURF FOR SMALL-SIDED FOOTBALL WORLD CUP

2018 Socca World Cup Stadium

2018 Socca World Cup Stadium

It’s a truism that after every world championship the focus is on the next. The same applies for football. But it would be a mistake to think of 2022 and Qatar already. Because the next World Cup is happening at the end of September and it will be held in Lisbon. The Portuguese capital will play host to 32 teams from around the world as they battle it out for the biggest title in small-sided football. The venue for the Socca World Cup is the stadium in the Praça do Comércio, which has been built specially for this event. This square marks the centre of the vibrant capital city and is where all the matches in the tournament will be held.

Germany’s national team will also be in on the action under the excellent leadership of national coach Malte Froehlich and assistant coach Sebastian Maak. The games will be played just like the “big ones”: the group stage consists of eight groups, each with four teams. The teams all play each other with the aim of finishing in the top two of each group to reach the last sixteen. They then move on to the knockout stage to try and make it to the final on 29 September 2018. The German team’s first opponent is India, followed by Croatia and Angola. The games are played on a half-size pitch – and on synthetic turf from Polytan.

LigaTurf Socca Surface for the 2018 Socca World Cup

Polytan has created the “LigaTurf Socca” playing surface in conjunction with the International Socca Federation (ISF) specifically for this major event. This synthetic turf is custom-made and has smooth and textured filaments like the LigaTurf Cross system, although in this case they are green and blue. And this surface is likewise extremely robust and easy to maintain. Friedemann Söll, Head of Product Management & Marketing at Polytan, comments on “LigaTurf Socca”: “We are proud that our latest technological advances enable us to contribute to an event that brings so much pleasure to people across the world.

Events of this kind show that sports events are moving increasingly from out-of-town stadiums into the inner cities and the big squares where they can reach spectators on an emotional level. We provide easy-to-install, temporary systems to cater for this clearly identifiable trend so that professional sport can be practised in such venues as well. And, needless to say, we are also taking the opportunity to demonstrate the numerous attributes of synthetic turf systems in Lisbon in conjunction with our partner ISF.”

2018 Socca World Cup Stadium

Shahzeb Trunkwala, Vice-President of the ISF, emphasised the fact that its partnership with Polytan is set to continue after the current World Cup and into the future. Christoph Koechy, who manages all the sponsorship activities around the World Cup, believes he is receiving the best possible support from Polytan and the “very best artificial turf you can get anywhere.”
