HOW IS A FUTSAL FIELD DESIGNED? ITALGREEN WILL TELL YOU

Thursday , 27 August 2020
Whether used by amateur or professional players, a five-a-side football pitch must be designed to ensure it has very specific characteristics such as playability, resistance to stress, usability and dimensions, which must comply with the measures indicated by federal regulations.

A futsal field design involves several phases aimed at verifying the requirements of the land on which the field will be built, and then continuing with a real study of all the elements: from the laying of synthetic turf to drainage systems and lighting systems.

 

Futsal field design steps

The first step in designing a futsal field is an inspection to verify that the ground has the appropriate characteristics to host the future playing field. Among these, the dimensions:

  • the field can vary from 32x18m to 42x25m
  • the goals must be 3x2m
  • the penalty spot is 6m from the goal line

In this phase, the topographical survey is fundamental and helps to establish the possible slope of the land. The surface of the field, in fact, must be smooth and flat in order to promote the spectacle of the game and ball rolling.

 

 

After the inspection

The actual designing begins at this point and includes:

  • the technical feasibility study
  • the economic feasibility study with the various cost items
  • the production of the futsal field design
  • field constructions
  • the laying of synthetic turf, which in turn includes three phases (stabilization of the soil, laying of the turf, infill and brushing)
  • the installation of complementary works, such as fences, the lighting system, the equipment, the irrigation system

 

The most suitable synthetic turf for designing a futsal field

In the estimate of a futsal field design includes the item relating to synthetic turf because:

  • it allows great playing fluidity
  • it allows Ideal ball bounce and sliding
  • it allows optimal foot grip and torsion during the game and training

In addition, it also has economic advantages:

  • it requires little maintenance, resulting in savings in irrigation costs
  • it ensures that the field can be used all year round, even after bad weather, because the drainage system under the turf avoids the accumulation of water on the surface
  • it is extremely resistant to continuous treading, bad weather and UV rays

 

What types of artificial turf do we recommend

Green HD is the turf that we most recommend when we design a futsal field. It is a type of synthetic turf certified by many national and international sports federations, characterised by:

  • very resistant smooth yarn with a high elastic memory

Alternatively, there are two other types of synthetic turfs suitable for futsal fields: DMX and Zerofill.

 DMX is a synthetic grass surface made of special monofilament fibre that is extremely resistant to weakening caused by the effects of ultra-violet light and ice. It is characterised by:

  • the elongated diamond shape of the fibres which ensures their immediate return to a vertical position after being trod on
  • softness that protects against abrasion in the event of athletes falling or slipping

 

 Zerofill is a type of synthetic turf that does not require stabilisation and performance infill thanks to the combination of two types of monofilament polyethylene fibres with high wear resistance. Furthermore:

  • three shades of green which recreates the effect of a natural lawn
  • it is characterised by an extreme softness which considerably reduces the abrasion coefficients
