Campo de Fútbol Mario Suárez, Madrid

July 2024

Right in the centre of the capital of football

The Spanish municipality of Alcobendas is located in the metropolitan region of Madrid, around 13 kilometres from the city centre, and is also one of the capital’s most affluent districts. Alcobendas is sadly known for the fact that the American singer Bing Crosby died here of a heart attack while playing golf. But otherwise, sport only makes positive headlines in the community: the women and men of the Balonmano Alcobendas club have both already played handball in the top Spanish league.

The Valdelasfuentes district is home to the Madrid City Football Academy, which was founded in 2023 and is a professional football academy that attracts young players from all over the world. The Valdelasfuentes sports centre is distributed throughout the area and includes numerous facilities such as football pitches, swimming pools and gyms, including five new high-quality synthetic turf football pitches. Among them is Campo de Fútbol Mario Suárez, named after Mario Suárez Mata, a former footballer from Alcobendas who played over 120 games for Atlético Madrid, the club with which he became Spanish champion and cup winner.

The pitch is also used by the club Rayo Ciudad Alcobendas CF. But most importantly, the players of the Madrid City Football Academy train here. They receive a solid football education at the Valdelasfuentes sports centre, where they also get the opportunity to play against top professional clubs such as Real Madrid, Atlético and Sevilla. We had the privilege of installing our LigaTurf Legend Pro at Campo de Fútbol Mario Suárez.

This infilled synthetic turf system is a real powerhouse in terms of performance, making it the ideal solution for aspiring professionals with high demands. LigaTurf Legend Pro offers improved fibre resilience thanks to its special multishaped filament cross-section, while this specially developed cross-section also guarantees ball rolling and playing behaviour similar to natural turf. LigaTurf Legend Pro is therefore the perfect sports-specific solution for young Spanish footballers. Evidence of the quality of our synthetic turf system includes the certification of LigaTurf Legend Pro by various international standards.

The high wear resistance of the filaments has been proven repeatedly by thorough laboratory tests and ensures the surface is sustainable. Visually, the wider filament width provides good coverage and in combination with a BiColour design, a fresh, natural appearance to the playing surface. Thanks to the turf constructions adapted to the intended use and Polytan’s system structure, Madrid’s budding athletes feel comfortable and safe on the turf at all times.

Polytan is honoured to be able to install its high-profile synthetic turf system in Madrid – which proudly describes itself as the football capital of Europe. After all, more than 10 teams from Madrid play in the Spanish “La Liga”, and Real Madrid is undoubtedly one of the most famous football clubs in the world. The Valdelasfuentes sports centre is not only one of the best locations in Madrid for training and playing football, it is also just 10 minutes away from Valdebebas, Real Madrid’s training centre, and only 15 minutes from both the Estadio Santiago Bernabéu, Real Madrid’s stadium, and the Estadio Metropolitano, Atlético Madrid’s home stadium. In short: right in the centre of the football capital of Europe. Our LigaTurf Legend Pro was installed at the Campo de Fútbol Mario Suárez by our partner Decograss.
