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
Head of Sport, University of Manchester
Although this was a large and complicated project, we have achieved everything we set out to and are the proud owners of an excellent facility that we know will add massively to the student experience and will provide a world class environment for them and the local community well into the future.Vicky Foster-Lloyd, October 2017

STADIUM MANAGER OXFORD CITY F.C.
New SISTurf pitch installation to meet FIFA Quality Pro standards at Court Place Farm, Oxford City F.C
A lot of planning and hard work has gone into this project over a long period of time which has now come to fruition, creating one of the best football facilities in the home counties.
We worked very closely with SIS Pitches to ensure that a 1st class facility was created in a tight deadline, enabling us to be fully ready for the 2017/18 season in the Vanarama National League South.
With over 40 teams using the extensive facilities here we hope that all sides benefit from the playing surface and have a successful season.
SIS Pitches demonstrated an excellent understanding of our requirements and their team were very accommodating with the existing facilities that needed to stay open on the site. With 100 apprentices and a busy thoroughfare of users SIS Pitches and Matthew Hodgson the Site Manager in particular worked really closely with us to ensure a safe and well managed environment.Frank Thompson, August 2017
Business Manager, Sherburn High School
I would like to say how helpful, professional and efficient SIS Pitches (UK) Ltd were during the 3 months they were on site constructing our new full size 3G artificial Grass Pitch which was completed in July 2017.
It was a pleasure dealing with SIS Pitches both on a day to day basis and also at our regular site meetings where they kept us fully informed at all time. They had rigorous systems in place including health and safety procedures which passed all scrutiny from our local council.
Staff on site were always approachable, friendly and very knowledgeable. Regional directors/manager also visited regularly and were always available to answer any queries we had.
SIS Pitches went above and beyond the practicalities by accommodated our exam period where construction noise needed to be kept to a minimum when students were sitting their exams nearly. They were flexible where they could and considerate when needed.
At the final handover meeting only one minor issue was raised which was swiftly rectified and underlined the first class service we experienced from them throughout disruptive and inconvenient process involved in building a 3G pitch on a school site during term time.

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
DEPUTY ASSISTANT HEAD, VALLEY PARK COMMUNITY PRIMARY
We have really enjoyed training on the new pitches so far and as players we know that excellent surfaces like these, especially during the winter months, can help give us an advantage over the course of a season. A good training surface is also important when it comes to injury prevention too and I’m sure our new pitches will bring us many more benefits as the months progress.Michael Dawson, Oct 2015
HEADMISTRESS, CUNDALL MANOR SCHOOL
Cundall Manor School required SIS Pitches to deliver a turnkey package to a tight budget and deadline. The company were very accommodating and worked closely with us throughout the delivery of the project. Regular and open communication in the run up to the start of the project and then throughout the build ensured the senior management from the school were kept aware of progress and developments at all times, and that there was no slippage in either timescale or costs.
It was paramount that no-one’s safety either on site or around the site, was compromised. Strict adherence to Health and Safety protocols, both statutory and those requested by the school, ensured this was so throughout the duration of the project. Similarly, the professional conduct of the entire site team, the general tidy appearance of site times and the minimal disturbances to normal school day activities and use of adjacent sports grounds, were all exemplary. The superb playing surface has been eagerly used by a range of children from ages 6 – 16, hockey is a major sport at Cundall and the opportunity to play on our own astro has been wonderful.Amanda Kirby, October 2015
MANAGING DIRECTOR, ROSSLYN PARK FC
SIS Pitches were very highly recommended to us by in particular our friends at Saracens. It was a major project for Rosslyn Park, the biggest capital outlay for many a moon and we wanted to work with the best. We are absolutely delighted with our new pitch, it is an amazing facility and the amount and quality of rugby that is now being played on our 1 pitch main site is fantastic! We could not be happier with our decision to install an artificial pitch facility and, as importantly, our decision to work with SIS Pitches. We would highly recommend SIS Pitches to anyone looking to make the conversion from grass to 4G. Extremely professional from start to finish and a pleasure to work with.Shaun Justice, September 2015
