The FA Launch PIP Partnership

Tue 18th Aug 2015 | Football Stadiums & Facilities

The Football Association has announced the formal launch of the Pitch Improvement Programme (PIP) and a partnership between The FA and Charterhouse Turf Machinery.

The programme aims to improve the quality of natural turf pitches across all levels of the game with specialist advice and guidance via site visits, with the opportunity to obtain grants and discounted rates off the recommended machinery required to improve pitches. 

A website has also been developed with the aim of supporting local groundsmen and volunteers. 

With the aim of getting more people playing football, this key initiative has been detailed in The FA’s National Facilities Strategy, and will support the delivery of the new FA National Game Strategy.

Commenting on the initiative, Kelly Simmons, FA Director of Participation and Delivery said “The Pitch Improvement Programme was established in direct response to a growing call from local clubs for help with pitch improvements.

“The project directly supports grassroots clubs by providing support and guidance along with harnessing expertise from specialists such as Charterhouse and providing the equipment that clubs desperately need.

“The expertise and quality of the machinery offered will be invaluable and offers a genuinely sustainable solution for those clubs seeking to improve the quality of their pitches.”
