In addition to presentations (pictured) the Matchsaver AR8 (Air Roller 8) pitch covers were demonstrated at the Spartak Stadium, Moscow, which will host 5 FIFA World Cup matches next month
Getafe, Torino and FC Helsingor have all recieved Matchsaver pitch covers
This winter’s weather has been pretty terrible with at least two versions of the ‘Beast from the East’ to contend with plus the seemingly never ending rain which hasn’t let anyone quite out of its grip just yet.
Needless to say we’ve been kept very busy here at Matchsaver with numerous deliveries across Europe throughout the winter and early spring. Matchsaver pitch covers are now helping clubs including Getafe in Madrid, Leuven in Belgium, Sion in Switzerland, FC Helsingor in Denmark plus AFC Bournemouth, Southampton and Leicester City in England. Other deliveries were also recently dispatched to clubs across the UK, Italy and Germany.
Torino took delivery of Matchsaver air roller pitch covers in January. The Turin footballing giant have been using Matchsaver’s Automated Pitch Protection System to protect the Stadio Olympico pitch for many years now, but with Torino’s new Filadelphia training ground just recently completed the club also needed Matchsaver air roller pitch covers to protect their new training facility from the worst of the winter weather.
And it’s not just the footballing giants who benefitted this winter. Dover Athletic of the English National League took delivery of Matchsaver pitch covers in February to help them get through difficult weather conditions. In fact on one particular weekend Dover was the only club to go ahead with their home fixture with all other National League fixtures that day being postponed. So with spring (hopefully) just around the corner we continue to remain busy helping clubs far and wide with the challenges that the weather brings.

Matchsaver air roller covers being deployed at Vincente Calderon stadium, home of Atletico Madrid. The pitch covers are stored on trailers when not in use.
Following the delivery of the Matchsaver Air Roller 8 (AR8) pitch covers to Atletico Madrid at Vincente Calderon stadium the following assessment has been quoted by leading agronomist Miguel Angel Azurmendi in Madrid.
‘The Matchsaver experience has been very positive. The covers have effectively protected areas of the pitch against the cold and provided superb coverage against the rain. For the client it has been extremely important for light (both daylight and lighting rigs) to pass through the material. In addition the ease of handling the covers and the minimal space requirement for storage (on trailers) has increased the satisfaction.’
