Because of the Hungarian climate, pitches there are normally turfed with grass imported from Europe.
The Ferencváros Stadium, home to Ferencvárosi TC, one of Hungary’s most popular and successful sides, is no exception.
Johnsons iSeed J Premier Pitch was used by contractor Premier Pitches KFT to reconstruct the pitch. The family-run business, owned by Istvan Bekefi has now been appointed as the new dealer for Johnsons Sports Seed in Hungary.
The Ferencváros Stadium is the first fibresand and seeded pitch in Hungary. Istvan used Johnsons iSeed J Premier Pitch and is hoping that the top quality result achieved with the surface will encourage other stadia to consider similar projects and products.
“I have used other seed in the past,” said Istvan, “but can comfortably say that Johnsons is the best seed I have ever worked with. I and the whole team are very impressed with the results achieved using J Premier Pitch.”
