Turf Moor Pitch Works Underway

Desso surface undergoes annual maintenence

9 June 2017

The Turf Moor pitch is currently undergoing annual renovation, in preparation for the 2017/18 Premier League season.

Each summer, the surface is replaced to ensure it is in pristine condition for the following campaign.

Work began earlier this week, giving contractors plenty of time to complete the maintenance during the shorter-than-usual summer shutdown.

Stadium and Facilities manager, Doug Metcalfe, explained: “This is our annual maintenance work, which involves taking the top organic surface off, down to the Desso structure, and then rebuilding the top surface again.

“It’s something we do every year and it has served us well in the past.

“The work takes around a week to complete and it will be ready in plenty of time ahead of the first friendly here on August 1.”
