The country’s first commercial artificial football turf is here, specifically in Bonifacio Global City in Taguig City, Metro Manila.
E-Sports RK International is the supplier of the artificial turf, and is already available to the interested football enthusiasts. According to Audris Romualdez, the E-Sports executive, “The Azkals and CF Madrid have already tested the field. They love it. There are only three artificial football fields in the country. The only commercial one is this one (Turf@BGC),”
Artificial turf are generally better than natural grass, in terms of ease of use and availability, Romualdez quips, “The players complain with natural grass is that when it rains, it can destroy the pace. It’s easy to shovel rubber granules over unleveled area. With grass, it takes about two to three days to play again. With turf, in 30-40 minutes, you can play again,”
According to Ernest Nierras, “Turf@ BGC is owned and operated by BGC. The PFF will be providing Technical and Administrative support.”
