World-class Serpentine turf planned for Perth Stadium pitch

A SERPENTINE turf farm will provide more than 17,000sq m of turf for the Perth Stadium playing surface.

HG Sports Turf was appointed by the State Government to prepare the stadium pitch and grow and install the turf.

Premier Colin Barnett said the playing surface for the stadium was an important element of the project.

“It not only helps players to perform at their best but it also provides fans with a great viewing experience too,” he said.

The turf will be a combination of natural grass interwoven with artificial turf and rolled onto the pitch.

Sports Minister Mia Davies said the turf would also be grown locally and was expected to be laid in the middle of next year.
