After a competitive tender and interview process, 3G football pitch construction specialists, McArdle Sport Tec are delighted to have been awarded a contract by Welsh Premier League side Aberystwyth Town FC to install a state-of-the-art third-generation pitch at the club’s ground. McArdle Sport Tec offered the club a new and innovative sports surface base system by TigerTurf called TenCate Ecocept.
Ecocept is a one-of-a-kind base system which has been specifically developed for synthetic turf playing surfaces. The base is manufactured onsite using 80-90% recycled end-of-life waste plastics and rubber mixed with a binder to hold it together. The new base system meets both FIFA and World Rugby impact requirements so can be used for football and rugby surfaces. Using Ecocept reduces the need for a conventional thick layer of crushed stone, and the performance base drains rainwater laterally so that traditional drainage methods are not necessary.
