The Sustainable Turfgrass Management in Asia 2019

Pitch Performance Workshop, August 5 in Bangkok


The Football Association of Thailand and the Thai League are putting on a full day workshop for sports turf managers on August 5. The workshop is organized by Golf Course Specialists. With the generous support from these groups, the workshop will be free to attend.

The focus of this day is pitch performance in Thailand, Japan, and England. How does one assess the performance of a pitch? How does one achieve the desired standard? What are the standards? What are the current conditions of football pitches in Thailand? Those are the primary topics for this intensive one day event, to be held at the Sport Science Center of Bangkok University.

Featuring John Ledwidge, the grounds manager for Leicester City FC, Nobuo Suzuki, the CEO of IGM Co Ltd, and Dr. Micah Woods from the Asian Turfgrass Center, this day will see grounds managers from all over Thailand gathering to discuss the production of top-level surfaces.

Contact details are on the forms if you should have any inquiries. Registrations must be made by July 25.
