Ultimate Soccer launches Australia’s nursery for 5-a-side football.
Polytan is proud to have been invited to design and construct the most recent state-of-the-art 5-a-side football facility in Fairfield. The UK-inspired center has completed Stage 1 of what will eventually be the Southern Hemisphere’s largest 5-a-side soccer facility, with a total of 15 pitches expected to be completed before the end of 2016.
Stage 1 involved design, bulk earthworks, revolutionary drainage, pavement construction, concrete works, ‘cage-design’ fencing system, new lighting and high-performance synthetic grass surfaces for eight new all-weather soccer pitches.
First challenge was to deal with a previously undiscovered massive stormwater pipe running the entire length of the proposed site of the new pitches. The unforeseen delay created some pressure to our ability to meet the original deadline for completion so what else could we do but muster all hands on deck and work long days to ensure we didn’t let our client down.
In the end, the project was actually delivered ahead of time, much to the delight of the team at Ultimate Soccer… and today, the flagship facility boasts top-quality pitches capable of all-weather play, featuring the latest turf technology for exceptional conditions all year round, come rain, hail or shine.
We’re thrilled to have been involved in this outstanding development for Australian football now dubbed the ‘nursery of our nation’s football’. This amazing complex is sure to support a new generation of youthful footballers – and former stars alike – who have the opportunity to develop their skills and enjoy one of Australia’s top-class facilities.
