After securing a 35 year lease on Horsfall Stadium, works commenced in June converting the club’s old natural grass field to a new synthetic pitch. By scanning the entire surface we were able to design a sub base and drainage system to accommodate the new surfacing solution to deliver the most technologically advanced artificial turf pitch.
Our chosen surfacing solution: Max BiPlex, a hybrid artificial grass laid over performance shock pad on an engineered sub base, designed & built to meet FIFA Quality Pro and World Rugby standards.
The new surface has been an immediate hit with players. Such progressive investments allow clubs to plan for the next generation, providing year-round access to match and training facilities, helping to secure the future for players at all levels.

MAX BIPLEX 60
Designed by PST Sport | Manufactured by CCGrass
Designed by PST Sport’s Managing Director, Colin Teahon and manufactured by FIFA and World Rugby Preferred Producer, CCGrass, the Max BiPlex 60 system installed at Bradford Park Avenue is a unique surface designed to meet FIFA Quality Pro and World Rugby standards.
Max BiPlex is a hybrid two-fibre product, extruded to 12,000 and 5,500 dtex respectively. Max BiPlex combines the Max monofilament yarn, made with C8 polymer, with a strengthened fibrillated yarn to create a unique surface. The result is the best possible pitch, combining football performance with safety and durability to meet the club’s demands.
Innovative Sports Turf Technology
The concept of combining two different types of yarn to create a hybrid turf is a step forward for dual sport pitches, creating an innovative surface that meets both football and rugby league requirements.
Max yarn is a crinkle shaped fibre, encouraging “springback” when the fibre is flattened, making it exceptionally resilient, whilst the fibrillated yarn spreads to help contain infill splash.
Once installed, the new surface was infilled with a base layer of sand and a performance layer of SBR. The new pitch, completed at the beginning of September has been independently tested to the highest quality – FIFA Quality Pro and World Rugby standards.

Feedback from the Club
“Bradford Park Avenue FC have invested in a brand new 3G pitch as a stadium pitch and this was completed this summer by PST Sport. We are delighted with the playing surface and the work done to deliver the pitch by PST Sport.
PST worked with the club from the very start ensuring the project was delivered to specification and project budget. We would not hesitate to recommend PST Sport to clubs wishing to invest in their facilities.”
Mark Leadbeater, CEO, Bradford Park Avenue FC
The project commenced in June 2020 removing the turf from the pitch in preparation for sub base works & drainage, with completion and subsequent testing to FIFA Quality Pro & World Rugby standards achieved in September.
