Located just beside Mercato Centrale @ BGC, it uses ternate yarn, an artificial grass-like surface produced by Limonta of Italy.
Here’s more information about this one-of-a-kind Football Field in Manila…
The football field has a dimension of 305ft x 164ft and is equipped with a 3-meter high permanent fence with a 10-meter high net, and a powerful lighting system that can illuminate the field for practice games, competitions and TV coverage.
According to Manny Blas II, BGC’s head of commercial operations:
“Turf BGC is part of BGC’s continuing promotion and support of a lifestyle that encourages a balanced live-work-play range of activities. Whether as a sport, form of recreation or fitness, or merely a venue for healthy socialization, the global appeal and passion for Football has captured BGC long before the country’s pride, Azkals, [rose] to international recognition.”
“I have not seen players or fans that are more passionate about their sports than those of Football. We wanted to give them a world-class venue that will fuel this passion even more. It’s right here in BGC, the home of passionate minds.”
The Azkals won the exhibition game against the Stallions, the leading team in the United Football League during the opening of Turf BGC.
(Tip: Visit Midnight Mercato for your Midnight Snack afterwards! 🙂 )
Turf BGC is open on a book-and-buy policy on a first-come, first-served basis (about P2,800 per hour). It’s quite hard to get a booking since most slots are reserved for football team practices or football trainings.
