Case story

MX Elite pitch at new Edinburgh Rugby Stadium

Scotland, Edinburgh

In February 2021 Edinburgh Rugby and Scottish Rugby opened their new and dedicated rugby stadium. The stadium is equipped with a GreenFields MX Elite pitch and holds around 7,800 supporters (around 5,800 seated and around 2,000 safe-standing), close to the action and under covered stands on all four sides.

The club opted for a woven GreenFields MX Elite pitch, because of the proven success at the similar facility in Scotstoun (home to the Glasgow Warriors). MX Elite will offer the club a top-class playing surface, which is aesthetically pleasing and very durable. To get the best possible player-surface interaction with slidings and tackles, Edinburgh Rugby installed an irrigation system; which is also great to cool the surface during warm weather.
