Football turf manual taking shape

Following another intense period of research, trials and testing at the end of 2014 and the beginning of this year, the much awaited update of the football turf testing manual is now taking shape.

With some final validation work needed to conclude test methods on such topics as infill splash, advanced wear and consistency requirements on fields, the FIFA Quality Programme expects to launch the new test manual later this year, prior to the FSB exhibition in October at the latest.
