Parkside, the new home of Aveley Football Club in Aveley, England has got a new FIFA Quality Pro certified football pitch where Saltex DROP 6010 artificial turf system has been installed.
With a 3G playing surface and a capacity of 3,500 including seated accommodation for 420 spread over stands on either side of the pitch, plus standing space for many more, the main arena also includes the latest LED floodlighting system.
Club Secretary, Craig Johnson, a director, former player and stalwart of the club, has been a key figure in overseeing the Millers’ move from their old home.
“It’s been my long term ambition to move the club to these premises.”
With an artificial main playing surface, the club can benefit from extra pitch use within its impressive arena, as Craig concludes: “The reason for going 3G is purely from a sustainability point of view and income stream. We’ve got 21 youth teams next year and currently none of them play at Aveley FC.
“The idea is that they’ll be part of the club, but the 3G will be available not only to the boys and girls of Aveley Youth, but also to the local community.”
