PLAY @ THE PARK
In October 2014 an historic moment arrived for Merthyr Town Football Club and the local community, when the 3rd Generation artificial pitch at Penydarren Park was completed.
This exciting new development will further enhance the excellent facilities at Penydarren Park with the potential for year-round use. In addition, the facility will help create and develop a ‘hub’ of local community activity and act as a catalyst for collaboration with community, partners and potential investors; and deliver wider economic regeneration, social inclusion and health benefits for the community.
The installation of the 3G pitch at Penydarren Park was made possible through funding from the FFos y Fran Community Fund which is jointly administered by Miller Argent Limited and Merthyr Tydfil County Borough Council.
Our Third Generation (3G) pitch comprises a carpet of 40mm deep fibres with an infill base of sand topped with rubber crumb, all of which sits on top of a rubber shock pad. This surface is considered to play with similar characteristics and equally as safely as a good natural grass surface. It is tested annually to ensure it meets the exacting standards of FIFA 2* certification - currently the highest grade possible.
