We look at our clients’ needs and customise a pitch design around this, ensuring maximum value for money and return on investment.

With over 12 years’ experience working with some of the biggest names in sport, our portfolio includes over 400 artificial grass pitches with multiple full-size pitches across Ireland and the UK. This includes multiple fields tested and approved to FIFA, World Rugby, GAA & FIH as well as numerous training size sports surfaces.

PST Sport’s artificial turf systems are the most advanced in the market, anywhere in the world. In terms of carpet, our artificial grass is the very latest in synthetic turf technology; incredibly robust, durable, resilient, safe and player friendly.

Innovation has been a huge factor in our success to date. We have pioneered a new dynamic pitch subbase and irrigation system ensuring maximum longevity and stability of the pitch allowing us to offer our clients a tailormade solution unlike any other available in the market.

We are proud to have provided synthetic turf football pitches throughout Ireland and the UK from local youth soccer clubs to the highest levels of professional football. Our technically advanced design, planning, installation and easy-to-follow maintenance programs mean that we remain the premier choice for clubs and sporting organisations who want to offer an enhanced training and playing experience on a year round basis.

Lower Maintenance Costs, Enhanced Durability & Increase in Overall Playing Hours

At PST Sport we know and understand the positive impact a synthetic surface can have on any club in terms of lower maintenance and longer playing hours. Our artificial pitches play safely and consistently in just about any weather conditions. Our range of accredited surfaces will improve revenue streams as clubs can deliver a number of programs for the whole community on the new surface. This increased use will allow clubs to grow in numbers (members) and revenue.

Our range of accredited surfaces offer clubs/schools a crucial source of revenue, through pitch hire. Generating revenue from artificial pitches has become a lifeline for many clubs. 

What Makes a Great Pitch?

Many pitch bases are built without taking existing ground conditions into account. Issues with levels and drainage capacity in an aging pitch sub base are also common place in the artificial grass pitch industry. We build pitches from the ground up. By scanning the entire surface we have the ability to “see” what is underneath allowing us to work closely with our clients to deliver the most cost-effective solution. A well-built base will extend the lifespan of your pitch ensuring pitch stability for the long term and removing all uncertainty preconstruction.

The Most Advanced Synthetic Turf Technology

Our high superior carpet range is the very latest in artificial turf technology with industry leading warranties. In terms of works below ground, we have developed a superior pitch sub base design and irrigation system ensuring maximum longevity and stability of the pitch.

Our artificial grass is manufactured by CCGrass who are the largest producer of artificial grass worldwide. They are one of only four manufacturers globally with preferred producer status for FIFA, World Rugby and FIH ensuring that we deliver a superior quality product to our clients, every time.
