Manchester City stadium Etihad

This pitch has the ability to retain and recycle over 200,000 litres of rain and pitch irrigation water - a first in the UK for this type of pitch drainage system.

An example of what open innovation can lead to.

The new build includes an air vacuum system for the first time which can pull moisture out of the pitch against the force of gravity, meaning the Etihad Stadium pitch is one of just a handful to have this type of system in the UK.

We place a high priority on creating solutions that meet the best sustainability standards.
