The 29th Summer Universiade 2017 will be held in Taipei, where the construction of 5 artificial grass football pitches are already finished, including the ones at the Yingfeng Riverside Park and the University of Taipei. All of the artificial grass pitches have passed the field test of FIFA Quality Pro, the highest level of FIFA certification for football pitches. This means the football pitches of Taipei Universiade are qualified as the world’s top-level football pitches, striving to ensure the success of the imminent games. As the artificial turf producer for these pitches, CCGrass has made a new score in FIFA football pitch certification in China!
The World University Games, or the Universiade, is organized by the Fédération Internationale du Sports Universitaire (FISU). The age limitation for the athletes is from 17 to 28 years old, and only college students and those who have graduated no more than two years ago can participate in the games. The first Universiade was held in 1959, and later the Universiade became a world-level comprehensive games only next to the Olympic Games, therefore it has been known as “the little Olympics.” Since the first Universiade in 1959, countries worldwide have attached great importance to it, and kept sending their best athletes to compete in the games.
According to the report, Ko Wen-je, the mayor of Taipei, inspected the football pitch at the Yingfeng Riverside Park on November 28th, 2016. Having put on a jersey, the mayor took a try on the pitch, and complimented that the pitch was very beautifully done.
One of the staff of the Public Works Department of Taipei disclosed that the examiners from the FIFA-appointed lab exclaimed when they carried out the field test of the Yingfeng Riverside Park football pitch, that it was “the most beautiful football pitch” they have ever seen in their life. Indeed it is a magnificent and beautiful pitch. On the side, there is the beautiful scenery of the Keelung River and the ferris wheel, and at night people can enjoy the view of the famous Taipei 101 from afar.
In fact, this is not the first time for CCGrass to hold hands with the Universiade. CCGrass installed 6 artificial grass football pitches for the Gwangju 2015 Universiade in South Korea, and all of them obtained the highest FIFA field certification. The natural look and excellent quality of CCGrass won the unanimous praise from the Gwangju Universiade commission and the players. We are also honored to have received a recommendation letter from the Gwangju Football Association, which says, “Gwangju Football Association applied artificial turf to 6 pitches of the Gwangju 2015 Universiade, and now we are very pleased with both the artificial turf and the installation of the pitch. Without hesitation, we would recommend CCGrass to other football clubs or football associations that need professional and quality artificial turf.”
