PST Sport is delighted to announce that our artificial grass partners CoCreation Grass Corporation have been appointed as a Preferred Synthetic Turf Producer by World Rugby. This milestone means that CCGrass is now one of only three manufacturers worldwide with Preferred Producer status for FIFA, FIH & World Rugby highlighting our companies continued commitment to superior quality and excellence.

This appointment strengthens our offering to our customer base as Preferred Turf Producer status means that the manufacture, installation and maintenance of rugby pitches are in conformance with World Rugby regulations. This ensures that all PST Sport rugby pitch projects will have achieved specific performance criteria and attained key player welfare characteristics upon completion, an aspect that will see us continue to become the market leaders in artificial pitches.

Speaking at the announcement, World Rugby Head of Technical Services Mark Harrington said:

“We are delighted to be welcoming CCGrass to our global programme of referred Turf Producers having met the required standards. With a substantial global reach and significant expertise, they will assist the growth and development of rugby worldwide.

“The promotion of multi-sport facilities is a cornerstone of the development of our sport in both established and new markets. It is also recognised that the key performance measure of these fields should be focused on player welfare and the pitches delivered through this programme meet rigorous welfare and performance standards.”

PST Sport and CCGrass have a long standing and successful partnership since 2012. This partnership has grown focusing on sport at a grass roots level and staying true to our common values such as integrity, transparency and superior quality.

With multiple full size artificial grass pitches (three in 2017) tested and approved to World Rugby standards across Ireland and UK, PST Sport is committed to providing the highest level of player experience. We offer a complete product range and comprehensive service to all clients providing tailor made solutions for each project.

Colin Teahan, Managing Director of PST Sport added:
