The five roller system was delivered and installed in just two days in October and included full hands-on training for all the Swedbank Stadium grounds staff.
The stadium management’s brief for the installation was threefold. Firstly to ensure that Malmo FF’s Champions League matches went ahead as scheduled in winter. Second, is to help encourage as much grass growth (germination) as possible throughout the winter months. And third, to help reduce the stadiums Under Soil Heating (USH) energy costs.
Markku Syvaniemi, Scandinavia Regional Director, commented, “Matchsaver systems have a great track record across Scandinavia in protecting pitches from the potentially harshest of conditions. We have tailored the covering system specifically for the stadium”
