Some great news reached us this week of England making it all the way to the final of the FIFA World Cup in 2018!
Okay, so strictly speaking not the England football team (we live in hope!), but it is true that England will have a guaranteed representative on the big day.
Cumbrian-based SIS Pitches announced it had developed a unique mixture of natural and artificial grass, SISGRASS, that’s been chosen by the World Cup for installation at Moscow’s historic Luzhniki Stadium. It’s the first time ever the final will be played on a pitch that’s anything other than all-natural grass, being impregnated with more than 150 miles of specially developed synthetic yarn.
