Course Manager, Long Ashton Golf Club
‘Since being stitched with SISGrass, the tee on the par 3 13th at Long Ashton has seen improved surface consistency and stability. Surface damage is reduced through play, extending the usage and improving recovery time with less repair work. The SISGrass fibres blend naturally into the grass sward, improving the appearance of the tee after usage.’James Braithwaite, January 2018
Stadium Manager of Trabzonspor FC Medical Park Stadium Senol GUNES Sport Complex
After the stitching of SISGrass on the pitch in Oct 2016, we played our first game on the surface a month after. When we make a comparison between our old stadium pitch at Avni Aker Stadium and our new one at Medical Park Stadium, the improvements are easy to observe.
The new pitch playing surface is durable, with better root establishment underneath leading to lesser wear and tear during games.
There have been no injuries to any player that has played on the pitch. We are fully satisfied what SIS Pitches made with SISGrass and the regular maintenance of the pitch so far.
Additionally, with installing a SISAir system, we are confident to say that the system is able to provide a cool, fresh breeze underneath. This in turn leads to a comfortable rootzone underneath the surface and a higher-quality surface for the players.
We also have full trust in the vacuum mode of the system and we believe this will help tremendously to keep the surface water-free. This is important as we can get heavy rain fall during a game due to our location in the Blacksea Region here in Turkey!
With having the latest technology of SISGrass and SISAir, we believe the severe summer stress will not be an issue for us anymore, which it had been for many years with high humidity and hot weather conditions in our area.
We now have an exemplary pitch, which we think it should encourage to other clubs and facilities in Turkey.Huseyin EMIN, September 2017
CEO OF OLYMPIACOS ACADEMY
We are very pleased by choosing to cooperate with SISGrass in order to establish the hybrid system. Firstly because we improved and upgraded the pitch in our stadium ‘Georgios Karaiskakis’. Secondly because of their professionalism they managed to perform in difficult circumstances and to accomplish the works. We are proud to have this playing surface, the first in Greece and would be please to recommend to other clubs.George Pavlou, July 2016
TRAINING FACILITY MANAGER, BESIKTAS JK
Installation of SIS Pitches latest hybrid system pitch technology SISGRASS will be a touchstone of our team’s success. By having an all-year round mint condition surface for players – both on stadium and training pitch- it will give a consistent concentration for better play to all technical and field team. “Working with SIS Pitches has already feels like we have taken one step further towards to a new era of football play excitement.Mr Ilker Yilmaz, January 2016
MANAGER, HULL CITY TIGERS FC
With SISGRASS, SIS Pitches has not only matched the competition I believe they have bettered it. The accuracy of the stitching was amazing and was also cleaner and neater. Not having to worry about major oil leaks was also a huge comfort. Being electric is a huge step forward. The time on site was also greatly reduced, the whole pitch being done extremely quickly with just one machine. Its playability is excellent and all in all SISGRASS is a massive step forward, one which will benefit many clubs and training grounds in the months and years ahead.Alan Ferguson, July 2015

We had six weeks to grow the pitch from seed, and in this time we also had to carry out the stitching. The pitch was completed in five days with two machines- which is remarkable. The machines have many features which help to reduce the stress on the plant during the stitching which is a huge bonus with the renovation windows getting shorter every season.
We have been able to host additional usage on the stadium pitch and also improve on pitch quality. The players, coaches and staff have all noticed the difference both here and Pride Park Stadium and at our training centre, where we have installed four.Nathan Scarff, February 2017
DIRECTOR BUSINESS DEVELOPMENT, MALTA NATIONAL STADIUM
After consultation with world leaders in design and construction of hybrid pitches, the Malta FA awarded the contract to SIS Pitches who are well known for this type of technology. The works comprised of the removal of pitch profile to drainage level, the supply and installation of a new drainage system including a gravel layer, an irrigation system followed by sand and root zone layer as well as installation of SISGrass and grow-in maintenance. The standard of service received from appointment through to completion was to a high professional standard. The quality of construction was delivered to the highest standards with the project being delivered on schedule, within the agreed budget and to the satisfaction of players.Emanuel Cassar, March 2017
