SIS Pitches has been recognised as a FIH Certified Manufacturer and FIH Certified Field Builder by the International Hockey Federation.

This makes us the first company within Ireland and the British Isles to be double certified individually by the ‘Federation!


The double-certification from the FIH recognises SIS Pitches’ expertise in the control over the quality of hockey pitches in every aspect — from pitch manufacturing, design, construction, installation and maintenance.

Alastair Cox, FIH Facilities and Quality Programme Manager, said:

“The consistently high standard of hockey turf manufacturing and the construction quality demonstrated in SIS Pitches’ field building earned them the right to be internationally endorsed by our Quality Programme for Hockey Turf. This is no easy feat. Additionally, their commitment to providing great hockey facilities that support our Hockey Revolution strategy – to make our sport a global game that inspires future generations, was an important factor in their application.”

From manufacture through pitch construction and surface installation, all aspects of the works are managed and carried out by SIS Pitches.”
