Artificial Grass Pitches for Rugby Union

Artificial Grass Pitches for Rugby Union

Artificial grass pitches supplement good quality natural turf pitches – the enduring surface for rugby union – by providing playing, training and education facilities with a consistent surface throughout the year upon which the game can develop.

The RFU has produced some useful guidance documents on artificial grass pitches:

Insurance Cover for Artificial Pitches
The RFU Insurance cover acknowledges the use of artificial grass pitches and provides cover in the normal way, subject to permission having been given by the RFU to the home club/operator.
