3G Pitch Footwear

We are very excited to have recently taken stewardship of the completed 3G pitch so that the school and community can benefit from this fantastic facility.  We are immensely fortunate to have received a grant for the latest, high quality, all weather pitch that is the most accurate simulation of playing football on real grass available at this time.  The suitable footwear must be worn by users all the time in order to maintain the surface and prevent injuries. 

Only plastic studded footwear can be worn. In particular, an Artificial Ground (AG) boot is perfect for 3G turf thanks to its conical studs. These allow the boot to move and rotate freely, without damaging the surface. They offer good grip and often the studs are hollowed out to keep them lightweight and allow them to absorb impacts. It is also possible to wear firm ground football or rugby boots with round plastic studs. These are particularly attractive as they are multi-functional and can be used on both 3G and natural pitches. If purchasing or using this type of boot, a reinforced toe is recommended as boots wear faster on this surface.   Please note that footwear that is used on grass and 3G surfaces must be thoroughly cleaned before being used on the 3G surface.  This prevents mud contamination. Please see the links below for examples of suitable footwear:

Kipsta Agility Boot
Kipsta Agility 500 FG
Adidas Goletto

It is not possible to use metal studs, bladed studs or ‘Astroturf’ trainers or boots on the surface. Blades are also completely unsuitable for 3G pitches.

We have also been advised not to allow dimpled or flat-soled indoor shoes as they are likely to leave the player unprotected and can be slippery on artificial surfaces.
