A ground I went to a few times while I was over there was C.D. Javea who play in the Regional Preferente, G. 4 in North-East Valencia. Excellent ground, generally around 5-600 attending (around 100 ex-pats) and excellent bar and grub. Anyone heading that way, it's highly recommended for next season.

From my recent visit to the USA, I can add the following two in the New York area;
FC New York
Long Island Rough Riders.
Although they have grass pitches, we received e-mail alerts from New Enland Revolution and New York Red Bulls that their games would go ahead 'whatever the weather, come rain or shine'.

Orlando City is an artificial pitch but can't guarantee the rain won't stop play! When I was there there was a rain delay of 2 hours after 15 mins play and last week they had a match postponed because of it!!

Those wishing to visit Dutch Ere and Eerste divisie grounds watching football on grass are going to have to be quick (Dutch pun there perhaps), as up to 9 grounds have kunstgras viz,

Heracles (in the Ere divisie),
Almere City,
Den Bosch,
Dordrecht,
Excelsior,
Helmond Sport,
Oss,
Volendam and
Venlo (in the Eerste).

Of these I am sure both Heracles and Helmond Sport are meant to be moving to new grounds. Perhaps these will turn out to be bigger versions of their existing grounds, but one never knows.

When at de Graafschap last month, they still were talking about moving, to maximise the return on their stadium (a wholly different way of thinking, as they can't fill their ground now that they're relegated, and are not playing particularly well either)



Football seen in: Scotland (268 grounds), England (969), Germany (289), Sweden (208), Netherlands (67), Wales (27), Ireland (S&N)(23/4), Austria (9), France (6), Denmark(5), Belgium(3),Italy(2), Luxembourg (2), Spain (2), Liechtenstein, Jersey, Switzerland, Canada
Figures correct(ish) at end of season 14-15 (1898 total)

Hou Ende Trou Zwijnaarde - Oost Vlaanderen Div 3B in Belgium - have a 3G pitch, and a useful location in sight of (but a mile walk from) KAA Gent's new Ghelamco Arena.

When I visited KVV Coxyde (Koksijde) in October 2011 in Flanders they played on an artificial surface. (Although Soccerway now state they play on grass) Pleasant club, typical of semi-pro clubs in Belgium. Excellent club house, good elevation from terrace and stands, but although situated on a main road it's easy to miss.

Re: [Bradshaw] Artificial Pitches abroad [In reply to] Can't Post or Reply Privately

Update on my post from above. From what I've been able to glean from this season's VI (Voetbal International)

Artificial

Eredivisie:

ADO
Cambuur (who are also looking for a new ground in 2017)
Excelsior and
Heracles (their move that I may have alluded to earlier is in fact an extension to their small stadium)

Eerste divisie

FC Eindhoven
Jong PSV (at de Herdgang)
Almere C
Helmond Sport
Oss
Waalwijk (little bit of a surprise there;little warning, luckily I've done it. By the way: they're bombing this season because of a clean out of players at the end of last season)
Venlo
Den Bosch
Dordrecht
Roda JC and
Volendam

and almost forgot:

Maastricht VV (or MVV) is supposed to be getting a new stadium in 2017; whether this is an extension to the present,or a new patch of grass wasn't mentioned inthe VI. Seemed to remember that their ground is the only one where I've seen three bar electric heaters hanging from the cover behind the goal to warm the support up; although it was a very cold night the time I was there.

There are many 'kunstgras' (artificial grass) grounds in and around Oslo, though not much use at this time of year to someone looking to escape freezing Britain.

The list includes Korsvoll, Kjelsas and Groruddalen, but I think the latter folded recently.


Firstly: "kunstgress" :D though you could get away with "kunstgras" as well, as it is part of "New Norwegian", which is the second official written language in this country (though mainly only used in parts of the North West country as well as inner parts of Telemark county (in-land from Porsgrunn/Skien))

I am aware it's an older post. As for a comprehensive list of artificial turf pitches in Norway I would sadly be of little help. I will just add Grorud (not to be confused with Groruddalen ("Grorud valley")) from Div 2 group 1, which is my most local team, well within walking distance from where I live. I was there with Biscuitman in May to see their 3-0 defeat by Premier League side Sarpsborg in the first round of the Cup. Sarpsborg are the team that used to be managed by Brian Deane.

a comprehensive list of artificial turf pitches in Norway



An old thread, but oh well. No real point making a list of plastic pitches in Norway, as the country is absolutely infested with these horrible things (one of the reasons my enthusiasm for Norwegian football has died a bit in recent times). It would be easier to list the grounds with proper grass pitches, but to avoid confusion...here is a list of clubs/teams playing on plastic pitches in the current top 4 divisions.

Eliteserien (top tier) - 9 of 16 playing on plastic
- Bodø/Glimt
- Kristiansund BK
- Molde
- Odd
- Ranheim
- Start
- Strømsgodset (ironically the club song is called "Old Grass")
- Tromsø
- Vålerenga

1. division (12 og 16 play on plastic):
- HamKam
- Kongsvinger
- Levanger
- Mjøndalen
- Notodden
- Sogndal
- Strømmen
- Tromsdalen
- Ull/Kisa
- Viking
- Åsane
- Aalesund

2. division group 1 (11 og 14 playing on plastic):
- Alta (indoors)
- Asker
- Elverum
- Fredrikstad
- Grorud
- Hønefoss BK
- Mjølner
- Nybergsund
- Raufoss
- Stabæk II (reserves; theyhave 2 plastic pitches outside the main ground, normally using the one behind the near end)


2. division group 2 (10 of 14 playing on plastic):
- Arendal
- Brattvåg
- Fløy (Flekkerøy)
- Hødd
- KFUM Oslo
- Kjelsås
- Nardo
- Skeid
- Stjørdals-Blink
- Vålerenga II (reserves)


3. division group 1 (11 of 14 playing on plastic):
- Drøbak/Frogn
- Herd
- Hødd II (reserves)
- KFUM Oslo II (reserves)
- Kristiansund BK II (reserves)
- Lokomotiv Oslo (groundsharing at different pitches in Oslo; this season at Marienlyst kunstgress)
- Molde II (reserves)
- Oppsal
- Ready (ironically this ground's name translates to 'the grass pitch', and was used for the national team's home ground from 1919 till late 1920s - it apparently got its name as it was the first grass pitch in a time when other norwegian clubs played on gravel)
- Rilindja (groundsharing at Haugerud)
- Ullern


3. division group 2 (9/10 of 14 playing on plastic):
- Bjørnevatn
- Eidsvold Turn
- Gjelleråsen
- Kråkerøy (currently groundsharing at Fredrikstad FK)
- Lillestrøm II (reserves) - playing indoors
- Lørenskog
- Selbak (two pitches next to each other - one grass, one plastic. Seem to be using the grass pitch when they can)
- Skjetten
- Strømsgodset II (reserves)
- Valdres


3. division group 3 (9 of 14 playing on plastic):
- Donn
- Egersund II (reserves)
- FK Tønsberg (ironically the ground's name translates to 'Tønsberg grass pitch')
- Halsen
- Pors Grenland
- Sandefjord II (reserves)
- Urædd
- Ørn Horten
- Åssiden


3. division group 4 (12 of 14 playing on plastic):
- Brann II (reserves)
- Brodd
- Fana
- Fyllingsdalen
- Sogndal II (reserves)
- Sotra
- Stord IL
- Tertnes
- Vardeneset
- Varegg
- Viking II (reserves)
- Øystese


3. division group 5 (13 of 14 playing on plastic):
- Brumunddal
- Byåsen
- Gjøvik-Lyn
- Kolstad
- Levanger II (reserves)
- Løten
- Melhus
- Orkla
- Ottestad
- Rosenborg II (reserves)
- Steinkjer
- Tillerbyen
- Verdal


3. division group 6 (13 of 14 playing on plastic:
- Finnsnes
- Fløya
- Frigg
- Grei
- Harstad
- Junkeren (indoors)
- Korsvoll
- Melbo
- Senja
- Skarp
- Skjervøy
- Sortland (indoors)
- Stålkameratene


* Below there, the majority also play on plastic pitches. For lower divisions in Oslo, be aware that there are lots of clubs without a home ground, groundsharing at different council owned plastic pitch complexes. Some of these clubs can use several of these complexes during their season. Most of these "grounds" are horribly dull and feel like noone's "home".
