The main arena of the country starts warming the pitch
Today, on the 25th of September, 2017 the main sports and cultural arena of Ukraine – NSC “Olimpiyskiy”, starts warming its emerald field with special mobile warming platforms. 2 platforms can replace the natural sunlight for pitch in autumn and winter seasons.
- Each of the platforms for pitch can warm 700 sq. m. of the pitch. Sizes of the pitch of NSC “Olimpiyskiy” is 7 887,5 sq. m., thus every 14 hours artificial “Sun” can “feed” 2 100 sq. m. of the pitch which is the 4th part of the whole field. Despite massive sizes of platforms, they don’t cause any damage to the pitch being made out of aluminum. So despite weather conditions, we are always ready to host matches and our field is one of the best in Europe, - Valentyn Gruzdev, General Director of NSC “Olimpiyskiy”, noted.
We remind that the same mobile warming platforms are successfully used at the stadiums around the World. The idea of mobile warming platform was developed in 1997 in Trondheim city, Norway during the Champions league match at “Lerkendal” stadium where the match was played in winter season on bad lawn. It was the date when the mobile warming platform was developed and patented in order to make growth of the lawn better.
Now the main arena of the country is actively preparing to host a responsible match for our country – the final match of the World Cup 2018 group tournament between the national teams of Ukraine and Croatia, which will take place on 9th October, 2017 at 9:45 pm at NSC “Olimpiyskiy”. Besides that, we remind you, that this Saturday, 23rd September, NSC hosted a grand concert of world famous tenor Andrea Bocelli.
NSC “Olimpiyskiy” – the bets is happening here!
