Launched over 16 years ago, LigaTurf has fast become the preferred artificial surface for elite-level stadiums, training centres and sports clubs around the world. As the first artificial football turf system to feature a straight monofilament to mimic natural grass, LigaTurf sparked a revolution in the artificial turf market.
Often imitated but never replicated, LigaTurf remains one of the most popular certified football turf systems in the world. It is so well-regarded by FIFA, that they have installed it at their Headquarters in Switzerland.
The new LigaTurf Cross 250 features Polytan’s exclusive Twintuft formulation that provides the perfect balance of protection, durability, softness and strength suitable for professional clubs and players.
The Twintuft formulation combines RS+ monofilament fibres with texturised LigaGrass filament fibres delivering optimum function capabilities in each system.
RS+ monofilament, non-directional fibres offer the highest performance characteristics such as resilience to wear, controlled traction and rotational values.
The texturised LigaGrass filaments promote durability and encapsulate the infill which reduces ball splash.

Where natural grass isn’t an option or isn’t delivering the desired quality, performance or safety, LigaTurf football turf is an ideal solution. Many natural grass fields begin to deteriorate if used more than 20 hours a week, whereas a synthetic field can withstand up to 60 hours’ usage per week. LigaTurf systems offer a consistent playing surface and require less maintenance which, over the lifetime of a field, can benefit a club financially and environmentally.
The infill and/or filling material used in our LigaTurf football systems ensures optimal playing properties, protects players and athletes against injury and reduces surface heat. There are a variety of synthetic and natural infill options to suit budget, performance and green credentials. The choice of infill is a critical consideration for your field given the variety of synthetic turf surfaces available and recommended maintenance service advice.
In 2001 FIFA established the FIFA Quality Programme for Football Turf in response to the growing need for an alternative to natural turf for football (soccer) fields. The FIFA Quality Programme for Football Turf aims to endorse products that meet strict quality requirements designed to improve the game and to protect players, clubs and associations.
Polytan is recognised as a FIFA Preferred Provider having worked closely with FIFA on the Quality Programme for Football Turf. As a FIFA Preferred Provider, Polytan meets the highest standards for synthetic football turf systems for quality, performance and safety.
All LigaTurf systems installed by Polytan meet the FIFA Quality Programme for Football Turf requirements for certification.
