Renovation hockey surface Wagener Stadium
Since 1938, the prestigious stadium has hosted many international tournaments and matches. It has been named as a venue for the Women’s and Men’s Hockey World Cup in 2026.
To stay prepared for the future, both the hockey turf and the subbase were replaced in recent weeks. The stadium got a new Ecocept® base, made from recycled artificial turf. Ecocept guarantees a consistent playing surface and reduced impact on joints and muscles for hockey players.
On top of the Ecocept, a high speed play GreenFields TX Elite was installed. This turf product has a high density of fibres and a multi-layer backing. This results in a fast game, a highly consistent and stable surface and reduced water usage.
