World-Class FIFA Quality Pitch Coming to Celtic Park
After years of hard work, Boyle Celtic FC will soon see a major upgrade to its club facilities in the form of a new state-of-the-art FIFA Quality artificial grass pitch. Works are due to commence next week on the construction of the full-size 105 x 71m FIFA Quality pitch. The project will also see the re-turfing of the club’s existing all-weather pitch.
PST Sport are thrilled to be part of this significant development. The much-needed facility will be a game changer for the club allowing teams of all ages to participate, play and train, year-round regardless of weather.

A club going from strength to strength
In recent years Boyle Celtic FC has gone from strength to strength with growing numbers across all age groups. There is a huge demand for facilities from Boyle and the catchment area. More and more teams are involved with over 500 playing members ranging from u6’s to over 70’s. At times the club has found it difficult to meet these significant demands with training and matches often called off due to poor weather.
Boyle Celtic FC is striving to meet the growing demands of its members by providing a soft, safe, weatherproof surface for all players to use, that will meet the club’s high-volume usage requirements, year-round and allow the club to grow and flourish into the future. After over two years of hard work by a dedicated committee and an extensive fundraising drive, Boyle Celtic FC will finally see their dream come to fruition.
Weather permitting, excavation works are expected to commence next week converting the existing natural grass field at Celtic Park. Key elements of the upcoming project for the full-size FIFA pitch include full groundworks and the installation of an enhanced drainage system, 352m of perimeter kerbing, 352m of 1.2m high spectator fencing, 192m of 2.4m high 868 fencing.
The chosen surface is our Pride 50, an advanced artificial turf system balancing durability, resilience, and softness to produce a superior sporting experience. Pride 50 is a top-level football system, designed to be installed onto a performance shock pad to provide the ultimate football experience. The pitch floodlights will also be upgraded to LED.
The club’s existing all-weather pitch will also be upgraded. Works will include the removal and safe disposal of the old carpet prior to resurfacing with Pride 50 laid over shock pad. Ancillaries will include refurbishing 100m of 1.8m high fencing and upgrading the lights to LED.
The end result will be a world-class artificial grass facility at Boyle Celtic FC where players of all ages can play year-round, rain or shine. A new era and a brand new facility that the club can be very proud of.
