Huddersfield Town has bought an additional three lighting rigs to help the condition of the pitch at the John Smith’s Stadium.

Dean Hoyle has furthered his promise of improving things both on and off the field this season and has invested £400,000 to help sustain the quality of the Terriers’ playing surface.

The lighting rigs will help the ground staff at the John Smith’s Stadium keep the pitch in a pristine condition coming into the latter stages of the Sky Bet Championship season.

Town has added an additional three lighting rigs to the other three that the Stadium company, KSDL, has been using throughout the season; after two new ones were bought in the summer.

The artificial light powered by the rigs will give the pitch extra attention and help grass growth at the John Smith’s Stadium so it can keep the playing surface to a near perfect condition during this challenging time of year, with both the varying weather conditions and the start of the Huddersfield Giants’ season.

Huddersfield Town’s Chief Executive Julian Winter commented:

“We are doing everything we can to help keep up the quality of the pitch at the John Smith’s Stadium.

“Dean has invested £400,000 to help the Club have the best possible end to the season and we know having a higher quality of playing surface will help David Wagner’s side as we near the end of what has been a very exciting season so far.

“The lighting rigs will help the pitch recover a lot quicker now that it’s is being used more regularly with the start of the Rugby League season and will also help the groundsmen at the Stadium deal with the varying weather conditions, in what is a particularly challenging time of year.

“The additional three lighting rigs means the groundsmen will be able to focus on larger percentages of the pitch and will help the condition of the grass as a whole.”
