The XVIII Pan American Games are the most important sporting event of the American continent that will be held for the first time in Peru. The Pan American Games Lima 2019 will gather around 6,700 athletes, who will participate in 39 sports and 61 disciplines, of which 22 disciplines are qualifying for the Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games.

There will be a total of 17 days of competitions and ceremonies to be held in 14 districts of Lima and Callao, in different venues such as VIDENA, Villa Maria del Triunfo sports complex, Callao Regional Sports Village, Villa El Salvador Sports Center, Punta Rocas, among others.

In total, the Villa Maria del Triunfo sports complex contains five GreenFields pitches; two blue TX Elite hockey pitches, and three GreenFields XP 40 pitches for softball and baseball. This XP product uses the most advanced fibrillated tape fibres manufactured by a patented process. The end result – a narrower fibrillation pattern than other fibrillated tape fibres  - give the user a softer organic surface close to natural grass. GreenFields XP combines this with enhanced durability and increased comfort and safety leading to an excellent playing experience. All five pitches are installed by GreenFields partner Menbel Sports.
