State-of-the-art SubAir technology for Chinnaswamy stadium

Headlines like “Match called off” and “Match delayed due to wet outfield”, at the M Chinnaswamy Stadium is a thing of the past. The KSCA has installed the state-of-the-art SubAir system at the stadium to do away with the problem of a wet outfield.

The SubAir system enables faster resumption of play within minutes after rainfall. It drains surface water 36 times faster than gravity (10,000 litres per minute).


It works in two modes; the vacuum mode and the pressure mode. While the vacuum mode drains surface water that hinders playability during rainy days, the pressure mode helps in providing oxygen to the roots, thereby improving the quality of the turf. The Chinnaswamy stadium is the first cricket stadium in the world to adopt this technology. Some of the best stadiums in the world, the Wembley stadium, the AT&T Park in San Francisco and stadiums that hosted the FIFA World Cup in Brazil in 2014 have the SubAir system installed. Here is the ESPN coverage of the project.

Turf protection system for Transstadia
 
Transstadia in Ahmedabad is the first in India to adopt the turf-protection system from the world leader - Terraplas.

Non-sports events like trades shows, exhibitions, concerts, etc generate more revenue as compared with sports competitions but stadium owners prohibit the usage of their facilities for these events as this involves the risk of surface damage. Terraplas turf protection tiles are designed to protect turf from such damage. These tiles can also withstand loads ranging from spectator seating to vehicle movement to stage construction without causing any damage to the turf.  

Some of the best stadiums in the world that conduct sports and non-sports events use Terraplas. Prominent clients include the Wembley stadium, London, 
Dubai International Stadium, UAE, Sultan Qaboos Stadium, Oman, Donbass Arena, Ukraine, Yankee Stadium, New York City, etc.  More..
