Replay Maintenance working on 3G football pitch

Getting Your 3G Pitch Ready to Reopen

Specialist support for operators of 3G pitches following the winter COVID lockdown

Ensure your 3G pitch is Ready to Reopen after lockdown with the help of Replay Maintenance, the market leader in maintaining synthetic sports surfaces

Operators of 3G pitches in Hertfordshire are being encouraged to ensure their facilities are prepared in advance for any potential return of football, as the ongoing vaccine rollout gives hope that COVID restrictions may be lifted in the coming months.

Hertfordshire FA partners Replay Maintenance have produced downloadable guidance for providers as well as offering a dedicated benefits package to help ensure facilities are in the best possible condition ready for the resumption of play post-lockdown.

From cleaning, decompacting or repairing your surface to treating weed growth and disinfecting your goals, posts, nets and gates, Replay Maintenance can help.

Their services include:

• Free pitch ‘health check’ inspection and report
• Pitch repairs, in-fill top-ups, line marking, weed treatments
• Discounted annual maintenance contracts
• Reduced fee FA testing certification
• In-house maintenance training
• Emergency call out service

Replay Maintenance Sales Director Nick Harris said:

“We are all very hopeful and excited about the prospect that football will be able to return soon and that we can start using our facilities once again.

However, after the long break that we have all experienced due to lockdown it is important that before letting players back onto 3G pitches, operators make sure that they are fully prepared ahead of any restart.

The lack of use combined with the winter weather may have had a detrimental effect on surfaces, so we would strongly advise a thorough inspection and ‘health check’ should be carried out before reopening.

This will help identify any issues ensuring they can be quickly addressed thereby avoiding any potential injuries to players and unnecessary damage to the surface.”
