FC Barcelona has taken their pitch refurbishment to a new level by installing artificial pitches with the hybrid artificial pitch infill PRO-gran at their training ground Ciutat Esportiva Joan Gamper.
As Europe’s destination for future footballers, FC Barcelona employed specialists to research alternative artificial pitch infills on the market. The FC Barcelona medical team were part of the testing team to ensure the infill met the requirements for player safety. Due to PRO-gran being REACH compliant as a consumer product, the team decided that no other infill came close to PRO-gran for safety and performance.
Produced by Murfitts Industries, PRO-gran releases no PAHs or heavy metals, and is REACH compliant as an article, making it one of the highest performing infills on the market.
Discussing FC Barcelona's adoption of PRO-gran, Managing Director Mark Murfitt commented that, "FC Barcelona are well-renowned for producing high-quality football, so it's only fitting that they build a high-performance pitch which takes into consideration the safety of the players."
Since its introduction to the world of football in 2017, PRO-gran has continued to dominate international fields and is now being played on pitches across four continents.
