Taiwan's new FIFA Two Star Recommended synthetic turf playing surface from Act Global, a mark of elite level play.

It has been an honor to be a part of this prestigious landmark project, and to receive such positive comments from the players, coaches, facility management and dedicated maintenance team.

As part of a government initiative to support the growth of football in Taiwan, Wu Feng University has received the country's first FIFA Certified synthetic turf pitch. The field was designed and built to the highest standards by Act Global and partners, to achieve a Recommended Two Star mark for elite level football.

The new playing surface is the first of many which will use artificial turf to promote the growth of football in the country. The pitch serves as the training base for the Men’s and Women’s National football teams, and has been well-received by players, the University and its affiliates. Act Global senior management recently visited to conduct site inspection, provide support and evaluate feedback.

“It has been an honor to be a part of this prestigious landmark project, and to receive such positive comments from the players, coaches, facility management and dedicated maintenance team,” said Daniel Clapham, regional manager.

The client chose Act Global due to the company’s strong local presence, FIFA Preferred Producer status, and track record of delivering excellence in the region. They selected an artificial turf product manufactured in Act Global’s ISO 9001 Certified USA facility in Georgia, a world-recognized standard for quality management. Fred Gregg, quality manager, said the production team maintains strict quality controls, including manual inspection of every artificial turf roll leaving the facility.

The pitch was built in partnership with SUS Sports International Co. Ltd, an established leader in the Taiwan sports surfacing market, and Act Global’s regionally-based UK installation crew. By pairing current international best practices with the top local sports construction management team in Taiwan, they completed a superior installation benchmarked to the highest global standards of play.

“Executing a project to this level demonstrates our approach to teamwork and service, range of technical skills, and effective collaboration with the right local partner,” said Clapham. “This combination allows us to achieve top results whilst still being able to offer a competitive price.”

Act Global has a solid partner and customer base in the region, and is continually seeing demand growth for better performing artificial sports turf. Clapham said that by selecting a higher quality product, buyers get longer lasting fields, better performance and safety, and increased playing time to maximize the value of their investment.

Act Global has been a FIFA Preferred Producer since 2009, and also supplied the first FIFA Certified pitches to Vietnam, Mexico, Guatemala and Brazil.
