Artificial Pitches in Wales

Summary Analysis of ATP Provision in Wales (details correct as of September 2016)

Artificial pitches in Wales make a key contribution to getting people active.

The Football Association of Wales, Hockey Wales and Welsh Rugby Union together with Sport Wales - the 'Collaborative Sports Facilities Group' - have established a nationally agreed vision and model for developing clubs and increasing participation through appropriately located and fit for purpose artificial playing surfaces.

 The information below has been provided by the Group as part of research and planning for investment in facilities.
