The Vietnam league’s training sessions takes a few hours on the main field. Since a natural football turf field cannot be sustained as a high quality football surface for more than 300 hours of play per year, these fields are subjected to overuse resulting in bald patches and an inconsistent surface.
“I have played on several high quality synthetic turf fields in the Netherlands and looking back I now really appreciate the consistency and safety of these fields. I strongly believe that in the near future a large number of clubs in Vietnam will follow the same trend as in the Netherlands and replace their natural turf fields with high-grade synthetic turf,” said Danny van Bakel, a football professional who has been recently appointed as the brand ambassador of GreenFields in Vietnam.
“In my opinion all professional football players in Vietnam should have a chance to play on a field of GreenFields in order for them to realize how a good quality field can contribute to the success of the game,” added Bakel.
Emphasizing further on the future of synthetic turf in Vietnam Bakel said, “It's not only important for stadiums, but also for training ground. The fields are perfect in all weather conditions allowing the fields to be used even more and the youth teams to improve faster.” (NA)
