Just over a week into the 2018 FIFA World Cup, and competition is fierce between each of the countries’ national teams. This morning was kicked off with a match between Brazil and Costa Rica where Brazil secured the win in the 90th minute of the game. Brazil’s next match will be Wednesday, June 25th against Serbia.
Leading up to the 2018 World Cup, the Brazillian National Team has trained at their home facility, Granja Comary (CBF). The training center was completely revamped in 2014 to feature state of the art amenities for the athletes and offer superior training throughout their offseason. Part of the renovations to the center included the installation of a FIFA 2-star rated artificial grass field from Act Global.
Act Global is honored to have such an esteemed team practice on our Xtreme Turf system. Xtreme Turf is utilized around the world in facilities ranging from elite professional stadiums to local community-centric training centers. Act Global’s commitment to engineering synthetic turf systems that meet natural grass benchmarks gives athletes a reliable sports surface that allows them to transition between different field surfaces without interference.
Artificial grass also allows players and teams to practice harder in the offseason so that they can better prepare for competition. With no limitation on the playability hours of the field, the Brazillian National Team has no limitation on how it practices in preparing for worldwide competitions.
Good luck to each of the teams of this year’s competition, we look forward to continuing watching the gathering of so many world-class athletes.
