The Lerkendal Stadium in Norway has become the first stadium in the country to have SISGrass hybrid pitch technology installed.
Home of Rosenborg, Norway’s most successful soccer team, the Lerkendal Stadium installation took just seven days to complete.
The reigning champions began the new season on April 2, with SIS Pitches beginning the SISGrass transformation on March 24. The installation was completed despite a large amount of snow and temperatures of -6°C in the evenings.
SIS Pitches’ first project in Norway arrives on the back of a maiden installation in Sweden last month, where the Gamla Ullevi stadium in Gothenburg received a SISGrass makeover.
Anders Øien, groundskeeper at Rosenborg FC, has expressed his satisfaction at the SISGrass installation.
“We would like to thank SIS Pitches for their hard work in the installation of SISGrass at Lerkendal stadium.
“We are really satisfied with the cooperation and professionalism of SIS Pitches and already we have had a very positive response from the players.”
SISGrass director Ivo Lamot, added, “Our first SISGrass pitch in Norway represents the way SISGrass is moving in the global market.
“The turnover was tight for this particular project but despite the poor weather conditions we completed the installation in just seven days.
“SISGrass provides Rosenborg with an outstanding natural pitch surface and it is fantastic for us to add another country to our list of hybrid pitch clients.”
