FIFA will issue the new Handbook of Requirements and the Handbook of test methods for the FIFA quality concept for football turf.
This much talked about update has involved some radical changes to the preparation and evaluation of football turf for FIFA certification.
The new FIFA quality pro and FIFA quality perhaps making a clearer distinction between community and pro fields this is a welcomed change. A new Lisport XL is making it debut and new tests for infill splash, heat on surfaces and yarns for UV and thickness to name just some of the changes in this a fairly significant overhaul of the 2012 version.
Sports Labs will be providing a detailed communique on the changes early next week or better still come see us on our stand at FSB next week.
