For the sport of football, the High Altitude Training Centre Kühtai has a lot to offer and gives athletes the benefits of altitude training at over 2000 metres. In Kühtai, athletes expect superbly maintained training facilities and modern infrastructure on site. The artificial turf blends perfectly into the environment and ensures optimum playability in various weather conditions.
The high quality synthetic turf pitch, with an actual playing area of 100m x 66m, meets international standards. The total area of the installation is 106m × 70m. Beneath the 4-centimetre-thick layer of “Polytan” Ligaturf, (a premium synthetic product which is ideally suited for championship games) is a 2.5 centimetre thick elastic support layer. Consequently an optimum shock absorption throughout the playing field is guaranteed. For playability, the artificial turf was filled with quartz sand and granules.
