Sutherland Sharks Football Clubs Winning Turf

By admin on August 7, 2017

TigerTurf Australia installed the first artificial football surface in NSW for Sutherlands Sharks in 2006 at Seymour Shaw Park. Made possible with the backing of major sponsor John Hills of Pipe King and the encouragement from former national coach Frank Farina, the Sutherland Sharks was the first Premier League Club to install an artificial surface.

After 8 years of intensive use, the club has asked TigerTurf to replace that turf with Endurance 60, an outstanding 3rd generation football surface designed, manufactured and tested to meet premium performance standards. 

Club President, Paul Smith: “We are happy to announce that the Sutherland Sharks will be replacing its 8-year-old TigerTurf surface with the highly durable Endurance 60, with works due for completion early 2015.

TigerTurf having built and installed the first synthetic football field in NSW, it is certainly rewarding to continue the relationship and provide the National Premier League (NSW Men’s 1) club with its new FIFA 2 Star field at Seymour Shaw, Miranda.”

The Sutherland Sharks pride themselves on their club facilities – a state of the art field and stadium. “We have enjoyed the benefit of the grounds for 8 years, with our teams able to train and play rain, hail or shine. We are glad to continue our relationship with TigerTurf and look forward to the completion of the new pitch in January 2015.”

Sutherland and TigerTurf proved their worth as trail blazers in 2006. The installation of the club’s artificial football pitch was the fore-runner of an unprecedented run of success for the club, with the Sharks winning the premiership in 2008, the championship in 2009, the TigerTurf Cup in 2009, club championship in 2011, and the Waratah Cup in 2012. The Junior Representative Sharks also proved the benefit of training and playing on a high quality pitch by winning over 20 titles in the 8 years since the first TigerTurf synthetic football pitch was installed.

The Sutherlands Sharks use their synthetic football surface intensively throughout the year. The winter and summer soccer timetables are full, and the Academy is turning out some excellent young talent with players able to train and practise their skills throughout the year without compromising safety. As well, school holiday soccer camps can be planned with confidence and are enjoyed by hundreds of keen young footballers.
