Synthetic pitches difficult to maintain – Boahen

Frank Boahen

The CEO of Green Grass Technology, Frank Boahen, says the country’s idea to shift to artificial football pitches will be difficult to maintain.

According to the natural grass expert, the clarion call to substitute the grassing system to Astroturf is uncalled off.

Black Stars coach Avram Grant was the latest to criticise the state of the Accra Stadium grass pitch, claiming it is one of the worst turfs he has seen in his coaching career.

But Boahen believes the Ghana FA’s idea of putting up Astroturfs in the country will not change anything.

“If you don’t have money for maintenance and you bring a synthetic pitch how are you going to maintain it.

“If the coach is complaining about watering, with synthetic pitch you still water and water issues still remains,” he told Starr Sports.
