Yes, it’s true – four 3G football turf stadium pitches installed by S&C Slatter have been selected to host matches in the tournament which takes place from 31 May until 9 June. That’s the 3rd CONIFA Paddy Power World Football Cup being played in the London region by sixteen members of the federation.
Sutton United, Slough Town FC, Haringey Borough FC and Bedfont Sports FC are among the ten venues that will see a total of forty matches. All four have FIFA-certified 3G football turf playing surfaces produced by our manufacturing partner FieldTurf with S&C Slatter responsible in each case for the whole specialist design and build process.
The Gander Green Lane pitch at Sutton has received high profile national attention and praise during the club’s fabulous FA Cup and National League exploits. However, all these stadiums have been recognised for their consistently high standards of play performance. At the same time, their accessibility and value as a wider community resource is now well proven and a fundamental asset in building stronger local relationships.
CONIFA is the football federation for teams outside of FIFA. It’s volunteer-run and committed to the highest ethical standards. As an international NGO it supports the football associations of states, de facto territories, regions, ethnic minority groups and sports isolated territories.
It is expected that some eighty thousand spectators will attend the tournament over the nine days.
