Pitch perfect

Cliftonville Football Club are delighted to report that, following a scheduled annual assessment, the pitch at Solitude has once again retained its FIFA Pro status – the highest possible standard for surface quality, performance and safety.

Conducted yesterday by Sportslab, the leading international experts in sports surface testing, the extensive examination included evaluation of even and consistent ball bounce and roll distance which, in stark contrast to opinions recently expressed in some outlets by media commentators and pundits, the FIFA-accredited specialists were pleased to certify that Solitude had passed to the highest specifications.
