Cardiff Met Uni Continue to Work with Sports Surface Specialists McArdle Sport Tec

After the successful installation of a FIFA accredited pitch at Cardiff Metropolitan University’s Cyncoed Campus in 2014, McArdle Sport Tec have been chosen to work with Cardiff Met Uni once again.

The latest project at the Cyncoed Campus involves the construction of a 400 metre, six-lane athletics track with a 3G rugby pitch in the middle and an athletics development facility. The team began on site in October and will be working through to June 2017.

The polymeric track will be built to meet IAAF standards and the athletics development facility will include designated areas for javelin, shot put, discus, pole vault and long jump.

To meet the specification required for FIFA and World Rugby Pitches, McArdle’s will be installing TigerTurf’s innovative “Rugby 360” surface system upon an in-site shockpad. This brand-new artificial turf product is a quality rugby-specific surface, perfect for rugby union and rugby league itches. The third-generation surface is made using durable XWR yarn and will meet the newly revised requirements of World Rugby Regulation 22 and FIFA performance standards.
