Al Janoub Stadium being stitched with SISGrass before Qatar 2022

At SIS Pitches, we are extremely proud to be trusted to supply the surface for some of the most important sporting fixtures of the year.

Back in 2021, our team was tasked with stitching 6 of the 8 stadium pitches for the 2022 Qatar FIFA World Cup. To ensure the players had a surface just as good to train on, we also designed and built 34 training pitches across Qatar.

The legacy that these tournaments leave behind is undeniable. Not only did Lionel Messi secure his first World Cup, but the stadiums built for these tournaments will eventually go on to host further immense sporting occasions.

Today Qatar will host Lebanon in the opening match of the AFC Asian Cup. Throughout the tournament, there will be 51 games played, of which 35 are played on a SISGrass pitch. The six pitches are Ahmad Bin Ali, Al Janoub, Al Thumama Stadium, Education City Stadium, and Khalifa International.

We’ll be closely watching the tournament to see further sporting memories unfold. Will you be watching with us? ⚽
