Alveosport shock pads for enduring excellence

Recent study proves that artificial turf fields still meet top quality standards after ten years of use


Artificial turf football fields based on a shock-absorbing layer continue to meet stringent FIFA quality standards after ten years of use. This was proven by a practical study completed earlier this year.



World-class pitches for the Homeless World Cup

Glasgow’s George Square was converted into a street football venue from July 10 to 16, to host 64 teams from 52 nations, including 16 women’s teams. Three top-quality pitches were built for the event. Sekisui Alveo donated the Alveosport shockpad for these world-class playing surfaces.

Five hundred twelve players arrived in Glasgow, each with their own story to tell, on their journeys to create a better life for themselves. As a sponsor of the event, Sekisui Alveo is proud to have helped them on their way.

 “To have three brand-new playing surfaces means so much to the Homeless World Cup and to the players,” said Mel Young, co-founder and president of the Homeless World Cup. “For many of these players, this event is that catalyst for change.”

An estimated 100 million people are homeless worldwide, and as many as 1 billion lack access to suitable housing. Of past Homeless World Cup participants, 94 percent say the event positively impacted their life, and 77 percent say they experienced significant change.
