Poligras artificial sports turf was first installed in Sweden in 1975 and was selected as the hockey surface for the 1980 Olympic Games in Moscow. Since then, Poligras has become the first choice for major global hockey events and Olympic Games. It has featured at seven Olympic Games including Sydney 2000 and Tokyo 2020 and is again the official hockey surface for Paris 2024.
Poligras Tokyo GT (Green Technology) is a world-class sustainable hockey turf specifically designed and developed to meet the Tokyo Olympic’s carbon neutral ambition.
This market-first synthetic hockey turf features filaments made from over 60% rapidly renewable materials (sugar cane) and are supportred by a shock pad that consists of fully recycled materials and a binder which is made by capturing CO₂ gas. In addition, the turf requires a third less water than those used in previous Olympic Games.
