What’s a 3D Pitch?

For those who haven’t heard, there is a new trend going on in football that will change the game in both subtle and obvious ways. Just what is this trend? It is the 3G pitch. 3G pitch is synthetic surface technology that is developed specifically to maximize the performance of football players so that they can do more with less.

What makes 3G pitch unique is that it has three layers that each provide a different level of support and traction so that players can keep pushing the envelope of what is possible on the pitch. It starts with a thin base layer of sand, followed by a rubber crumb, then topped with artificial grass  blades that look real and give a reliable grip for a fast moving athlete.

A Growing Trend

3G pitches have been implemented successfully in so many arenas that everyone is now trying to hop on the bandwagon so that they too can put on a better showing and give their athletes a competitive edge. One of the latest to join this trend is the Plymouth Academy, which very recently was awarded the funding necessary to upgrade to a state-of-the-art 3G pitch.

The 3D pitch has also increased the academy’s capacity, as well as their versatility. An almost $400,000 grant is what has made this possible, which was gifted by the combined effort of the Premier League and the FA Facilities Fund.

Bet on It

You can be sure that there will be a lot more mention and adoption of synthetic turf as time goes on and sports evolve. This also means that athletes will be better than ever at pushing the envelope and performing above grade.

So if you are someone who follows the league closely, it is a great time to cash in on that knowledge with the best free bets in the UK. Capitalize on your insider knowledge and make money just by doing what you love, watching the greatest games ever played. Best of all, the fact that you have some free bets to get you started isn't just a neat bonus but is an opportunity to learn the ins and outs of betting before actually putting any of your own money down. Knowledge of the sport and the teams and players involved is crucial but getting the hang of the betting itself is no less important.

The 3G Advantage

So are you wondering what the big deal is? Why is a 3G pitch so sought after by so many right now? Well there are a lot of advantages that it offers, but they aren’t that straight forward. That is why there has been a recent debate sparked over whether 3G is superior to natural grass. More and more clubs are opting for the synthetic pitch, but why?

There are many benefits of 3G sports turf, for one it is made to be very porous and weather resistant, so it can stand up to even the most formidable elements, which is nice as athletes can continue their training and matches even during a particularly rainy season.

Maintenance is also typically easier and simpler with artificial turf, as it is fairly easy to replace patches and drag brushing is used to keep the surface permeable and distribute the artificial grass as needed. It is no wonder that so many clubs are considering making the switch.
