Abstract/Contents:"Inaugurated in 1948, and in disuse for several years, the Monteponi Iglesias playing field has now been brought back to life through extensive restructuring and by restoring its natural grass cover. The draining system appeared to be in excellent conditions, notwithstanding the years of neglect, but the irrigation system was badly compromised. Accordingly, the top layer of earth was removed, all the pipes, pumps, sprinklers were replaced, and a new layer of earth specifically designed for lawns was applied; then, the grass cover was purchased in clods. In took approximately eight days to plant 7.500 m2 of superior quality fully grown grass, consisting of fescue, poa and ryegrass. After a 40-day root growing period and ad hoc treatments, the field was ready for use. The inaugural game was played on 13 November, as a friendly match against Zdenek Zeman's Cagliari: the enthusiasm of five thousand fans did not wane when confronted with the undeniable superiority of the A League team, which defeated the leader of the regional Promotional championship by scoring eleven goals. The stadium will host matches by local soccer teams playing in the First Category and Promotion championships."
