Installation of GreenFields TX at Dutch Wagener Stadium
Next year the World Cup hockey will take place in The Hague from the 31st of May till the 15th of June. GreenFields is very proud that the KNHB in an earlier stage has chosen for GreenFields TX as the official WC pitch. In order to provide the best training facilities for the teams that have already qualified for the tournament, the GreenFields TX pitches are being installed at several hockey clubs in The Netherlands. Most of the pitches are installed in the area of The Hague but nevertheless also other clubs in The Netherlands have chosen for this WC pitch.
The Wagener Stadium in Amstelveen has traditionally been the scene of hockey matches of the national teams. Several editions of the Champions Trophy and European Championships have taken place here. Therefore, it is logic that a World Cup hockey pitch is installed at the stadium. Due to this new GreenFields TX pitch, the Wagener Stadium remains available for competitions at the highest level.
Meanwhile, the World Cup field in the Wagener Stadium in full use. The first reactions are positive. The field hockey players find it enjoyable to play, the ball rolls flat and there is optimal ball control.
The new pitch at the Wagener Stadium is absolutely a top field! A fast and tight field, a good ballbounce, the ball rolls evenly in all directions which makes it possible to play a fast and perfect game. Floris Evers – Player of AHBC and former Dutch National team
Currently the first GreenFields TX pitches are in being used at HC Naarden, HC De Terriers, Ringpass and HCKZ. The clubs can ask the KNHB to be a training facility for international teams, so the teams can prepare themselves in the best possible way for the World Cup next year. Max Caldas, coach of the Dutch Women team, has chosen HCKZ as a training facility. The benefit of the club is that there are already 2 GreenFields TX pitches installed.
