Five community benefits to owning a 3G pitch

By admin on August 18, 2017

Over the years, we’ve worked with a number of communities up and down the country, all of which have benefitted in one way or another from a 3G football pitch. Here, we’ve shared some of the most poignant rewards on offer to those who invest in a facility of their own.

Feelgood factor

Communal spaces encourage collaboration and togetherness. From the fundraising and building of a pitch, to its grand opening and even day-to-day running, a new facility requires everybody to pull in the same direction, and there are countless examples of communities we’ve worked with who have found that their new 3G pitch has encouraged teamwork on and off the field.

Payback period

Everyone wants a surface they can be proud of, but what’s most important is ensuring that your investment is a sustainable one. A top quality surface will help to generate revenue from nearby clubs and groups to reduce the net cost of a pitch – in time, it might even pay for itself. You can even look for external accreditation, such as the FIFA Quality Programme, if extra assurance is needed.

Active community

Building a 3G pitch is a big commitment, so it’s lucky that getting the most out of one is easy. The latest artificial grass technology has been designed for high usage, whilst the nature of an all-weather pitch also minimises time lost to bad conditions. This is great news for members of the community, for whom the right facility can be the encouragement they need to get active. We tend to see huge increase in participation amongst communities with a new 3G pitch, from those taking up a new sport to rekindling a previous hobby.

Safe space

It’s important for any community to give young people access to safe spaces they can use on a day-to-day basis, and a quality sports facility can be just the ticket. Besides helping youngsters to stay occupied and active throughout the year, this also provides the perfect place for them to develop new skills and hone existing ones.

Reputation booster

It’s not uncommon for the benefits of a new pitch to extend beyond the community itself. A top-class facility can really stick in the memory of sports clubs visiting from further afield, boosting the reputation of any given area. We’ve even seen communities become regional hubs for organisations such as the FA, thanks to the quality of their facilities. Not only does this make a community an attractive prospect for to help a club recruit new players from further afield, but it might even provide a reason for house buyers to make this area their own.
