Abstract/Contents:"Structural components of artificial turf football pitches have been improved in the last decade. The aim of this study was to explore the influence of structural components on the in situ mechanical behaviour of third-generation artificial turf football pitches. In total, 21 pitches were analysed according to the specified FIFA procedures. The results revealed that each of the pitches complies with the requirements of FIFA regulations. Pile length sample, stabilising bulk density, tuft/m2 and sub-base material all demonstrated a significant influence on the mechanical properties of the surface (p < 0.05). Finally, the selected structural parameters explained 77.9%, 59.8% and 54.3% of variance in rotational traction, vertical deformation and force reduction, respectively. These results show the importance of the selection of the structural components in the design of artificial turf football pitches."
