Mariupol, Ukraine - A football stadium in Ukraine is one of the latest sports venues in Europe to invest in Evergreen® turf covers by Covermaster®, ensuring the field is well-protected from damaging weather conditions.
Stadion Zakhidnyi, home to FC Mariupol, is located in the city of Mariupol in the southeastern part of Ukraine. It’s the country’s 10th largest city and draws football fans to the 3,200-seat stadium. This summer, Covermaster® was contacted by Engo Ltd., one of their European dealers, to arrange delivery of Evergreen® Radiant turf blankets in preparation for the 2020-21 season, which kicked off in August. The season continues into late spring next year, providing plenty of opportunities to put the winter turf blankets to use.
Evergreen® Radiant turf growth blankets use a specialized silver coating to radiate heat back into the soil, creating a greenhouse effect for faster spring green ups and delayed fall dormancy. Effective for all climates, Radiant turf covers provide up to a 25% increase in heat retention, proper ventilation, and a protective barrier against adverse conditions. The result: thicker, healthier turf with better color and a longer growing season.
Stadiums like Zakhidnyi rely on the turf cover’s ease of installation, allowing for a quick response to sudden drops in temperature or changing weather conditions. Each cover is UV treated, rot-and mildew-resistant, and can stand up to years of repeated use.
