SIS Pitches are pleased to install a full size 3G GAA certified pitch, along with 2G concourse areas at the world’s largest air dome in Bekan, Co Mayo.
Working with Prunty Contracts this project involved the construction of a 3G synthetic GAA pitch using our SISTurf Hybrid 60 surface installed onto a Revosport shockpad, and 2G synthetic surface concourse area using our MultiSoft 24 surface. The aforementioned areas are all now covered by a specialist designed air dome.
The GAA pitch is 130m x 80m with an additional 3m player run-off zone around the perimeter, which brings it to 136mx86m. All together, the area covered is over 15,000m2, the inflatable dome is anchored to a metre high perimeter wall around the site. When it is fully inflated, the dome is 26 metres tall, and is described as the biggest indoor playing dome on the planet.
“It’s a very proud day for the Connacht Council and to see a facility like this in east Mayo is just fantastic.”
John Prenty, Connacht GAA
“We are extremely pleased to be involved in such a groundbreaking project and we are delighted with the end result. The facility looks amazing and something to be proud of!”
