Newcastle Falcons introduce a new turf for the upcoming season

Newcastle Falcons have used the Kingston Park multi-purpose stadium as their home ground since 1990 when they shifted from their original ground. Over the years it had been used as the site for Newcastle Chronicle and Journal Sports ground. The stadium was built in stages to ensure a capacity of more than ten thousand. The west stand is built keeping in mind the modern technologies and architecture. There are plans of extending the north and west stands in due course of time in order to build a world class stadium for the rugby giants. However the latest news which has created a lot of buzz among the rugby circuit is the installation of an artificial turf for the home team by the company that was responsible for the first of this artificial kind of pitch in Saracens’ Allianz Park.
The Newcastle City council was responsible for approving the plan of the Northumbria University for implementing the plan of the artificial turf. This will end the drudge of heavy and muddy pitches on the ground which created a lot of injuries and problems for the players especially if it rained. The new and improved 3G surface is sure to prove beneficial for the home team as well as the visitors. Dean Richards expressed his club’s excitement of having a world class pitch for rugby. The new pitch at Allianz Park had proved to be a huge success for the Saracens. It ensures that the game is played irrespective of the weather conditions. The Aviva Premiership rugby director Phil Winstanley has welcomed the innovations being introduced by clubs like the Saracens and the Falcons. The fans are hoping to get full worth of their money when they go to cheer their favorite teams at these two venues which add a completely new dimension to the competition.
