Matchsaver Delivery Round-Up Winter 2017 – 2018

Getafe, Torino and FC Helsingor have all recieved Matchsaver pitch covers

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 protects pitch for Atlético Madrid

Atletico Madrid Matchsaver covers

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.’

This delivery is one of the latest that Matchsaver have made to clubs across Europe. More delivery news to follow.

Matchsaver Protects Vångavallen, Trelleborg Sweden

Matchsaver Protects Vångavallen, Trelleborg Sweden.

Matchsaver can cover just half a pitch or a penalty box area. The rollers are stored alongside the pitch so are always ready to be used at short notice.

The Swedish football season kicks off in the first week of April and Trelleborg is one of many clubs busy with their pitch preparations. During March temperatures are still freezing and many parts of Scandinavia have seen snow storms in the recent weeks with up to 20cm of snow. Matchsaver Pitch Protection Covers are used to protect the pitch from cold weather and to raise ground temperature to help with grass growth. Trelleborgs Vångavallen arena does not have under soil heating, therefore Matchsaver football pitch covers are a welcomed pitch maintenance tool for the start of a busy season. The Swedish Women’s National Team will open the season on the 6th of April against Canada. Trelleborgs FF’s first home game is scheduled three days later on the 9th of April against Falkenbergs FF.
