  • Croke Park Perfect Pitch
    pitch is nearly twice the size of a conventional soccer field at 15 000 m 2 Pitch Makeup At ground level the drainage system installed is connected to huge suction fans which allow us to blow air through the pitch and suck water out These pipes are covered with a 300 mm layer of permeable pebble stone which has a drainage rate of about 900 mm per hour Over this a carefully selected Wexford sand forms the lower rootzone into which the undersoil heating system is installed The undersoil heating system works on a series of hot water pipes transferring heat to the sand rootzone The sand continues to a depth of 260 mm with a specialist fibre stabilising agent tilled into the sand to keep the surface stable On top of this is a 40 mm specialist sod which is a 100 natural sandy loam soil The sward upper layer of soil is covered in 100 perennial ryegrass Download the Croke Park Pitch Diagram During the returfing operation in July 2009 1500 roles of turf were installed on the pitch in just 3 days with games played immediately afterwards The pitch also has a fully automatic irrigation system which allows water application for grass growth and preparation for play Environment Although the stadium is well designed the covered end Davin does pose restrictions for light intensity on the pitch especially during winter This means that artificial lighting rigs are needed to supplement sun light on the pitch and allow the grass to grow in the shade Management Croke Park employ three professional groundsmen and daily tasks include pedestrian mowing and pitch repairs Croke Park operates an environmentally friendly cultural management system on the turf which involves a series of mechanical renovations yearly to improve pitch performance and minimise pests
