What is a Synthetic Football Pitch?
A synthetic football pitch is a sports facility made from synthetic turf rather than natural grass. This has many benefits as these surfaces are porous and suitable for use in all weather conditions. The artificial football pitch surfacing is also much easier to maintain as it doesn’t need mowing, and it won’t become muddy during wet weather.
We can install sports pitches in a range of surfaces including 2G sand filled turf and 3G artificial grass. Each different surfacing option can be tailored to suit your requirements in terms of playing characteristics and budget. It totally depends on how you would like to use the area and what your primary sports will be.
If you are going to be using the facility for a number of different sports you could choose to have a multi use games area installed, these come in numerous surfacing specifications depending on the sports you want to play. Just let us know what you need and we’ll create the design which will suit your facility perfectly.
Maintaining Soccer Pitches
As well as full construction, another of the football pitch services we offer is cleaning and maintenance. It is important to have your synthetic grass pitch regularly cleaned and looked after to ensure it is kept in top condition and to save on the costs of repairs in the future. This could consist of either proactive cleaning which is carried out regularly to maintain the good quality of the pitch, or reactive repairs which take place to fix any damage or weathering which occurs as a result of overuse or vandalism. Artificial football pitch maintenance is very important when it comes to keeping the facility safe and ensuring it is suitable for use all year round.

Building a Synthetic Football Field
We are able to build completely new soccer pitches in many locations across the UK. This process will usually begin with laying the foundations using a stone sub base to make the surface strong and porous. Next we’ll apply a layer of macadam, and a shockpad if required to help reduce impact on players muscles and joints. The next part of the artificial football pitch construction is laying the turf carpet and securing it to the base with glue. Finally the sand or rubber infill will be applied within the grass to complete the facility and leave the right playing qualities.
The costs of synthetic football pitch services can vary greatly depending on the dimensions and specifications of the facility. The prices for each type of surfacing can vary and different materials are better suited to different sports so you can choose a sports surface to fit your budget and to meet the required playing characteristics. Artificial sports facility services costs can be managed through a number of variables including the specification of the pitch and any extra equipment you need such as fencing and floodlights. We could even alter the soccer pitch dimensions and make it smaller to reduce the costs. This will help you ensure that you get a great quality football facility but at a price your organisation can afford. Costs and prices can also depend on other factors including location and access to the construction area.
Take a look at this video which shows a synthetic pitch construction project that we recently carried out for a school. This work involved completely excavating the existing grass area and laying a soakaway system for effective drainage. We then laid a compacted stone sub base to provide maximum porosity and durability for the surfacing. Then the 3G grass was rolled out and secured at the edges and joints to leave a seamless finish with clear white line markings.
Soccer Pitch Contractors
As experienced installers of soccer facilities we have worked on many projects throughout the UK. Some of our clients include schools, colleges, leisure centres and sports clubs, and we offer our expert advice to get the best outcome every time. In addition to building the surface itself, we also provide various different types of equipment which can be added onto the facility. This might include football pitch fencing which is designed to protect the area and keep it secure at all times of the day. Specialist floodlighting may also be supplied if you wish to use the facility in the evenings for extra training sessions, or to rent out for matches.
The costs of maintaining an artificial football surface are also different for every project; these prices depend on the dimensions of the pitch, the type of surface and the kind of work which needs to take place. Sports surface tests can be carried out to determine the best type of strategy for your sports flooring; this could include ball roll tests, anti slip assessments and water drainage checks. The costs will then be dependent on the surface aftercare scheme which needs to be applied to the facility. A surface which is already well maintained will require less maintenance which will therefore reduce costs, however a surface which is in bad condition will need more cleaning and repairs which will of course be more expensive. You can speak to our football pitch consultants to see all of the details on maintaining and building these facilities for both recreational and professional uses.
Woodhouse grove school
Soft Surfaces won a competitive tender to supply and install a new 6528 m² all weather pitch, marked for football, rugby union and three 5-a-side pitches. There is storage at one end for posts and equipment and the complex is enclosed by a 3m high rebound fence. Lighting columns were erected along the perimeter, and lighting bollards to the access path. A large-scale earthworks scheme was undertaken to create a plateau some 900mm above the 100-year flood level in order to accommodate the pitch. SS worked over weekends and during the normal Christmas shutdown to minimise delays.
When AFC Bournemouth wanted to create a new training surface, we looked into the various options. We discussed the performance and playing characteristics of a variety of surfaces. In the summer, we chose a 3G surface (Rhino Turf VT40) which was supplied and installed by Soft Surfaces Ltd. We chose the Rebounce shock-pad to compliment the VT40 surface, as it met the performance, quality and the most natural appearance – so much more realistic in looks, feel and performance than other synthetic surfaces. We have found Soft Surfaces to be very professional and easy to deal and work with.
Banister Primary School
We believe we received good value for money by opting to use Soft Surfaces and would like to thank the team for making it painless and stress-free installation experience. We were particularly impressed with the degree of flexibility your exercised as we wanted to change the perimeter area. It’s also important that I state how impressed we were with the cleanliness and tidiness of the work; the site was spotless upon completion. Likewise, the after service has been good and we appreciate that you’ve stayed in touch to make sure we were pleased with the end product. In summary i would be happy to reccomend Soft Surfaces without hesitation or reservation; it was a pleasure doing business with you!

Soft Surfaces came to run a brief presentation on the advantages of their product and why he felt that this was best value and straight away we understood what we was getting as a product, service and installation. I am more than happy with how the project ran with it being delivered ontime, within budget and now have a great football artificial 3G surface. I would strongly recommend dealing with James Dooley at Soft Surfaces who will talk you through the various costs, specifications and finer details because would definitely like to point out that the cheapest is not always the best value. Massive thank you to the team for providing us now with a thriving new facility!
Golborne High School
I would like to express my thanks to all the staff at Soft Surfaces Ltd for helping our school in the upgrade of our MUGA flooring. We were experiencing serious problems with contaminated sand causing flooding and making the surface dangerous under foot. You undertook a site visit and carried out an infill contamination assessment to investigate the problems. This identified that the sand infill needed replacing to bring the facility back to its correct playing characteristics and porous again. The PE staff in school are extremely impressed with the impact of the work undertaken and have commented that it has made a significant improvement to the MUGA surface. I would certainly recommend Soft Surfaces!
