Complexe sportif Tuzelet, Nueil-les-Aubiers

LigaTurf Cross at the “Complexe sportif Tuzelet” in Nueil-les-Aubiers, France

Meeting the (sporting) needs of two communes

The tranquil commune of Nueil-les-Aubiers is located in the western region of Nouvelle-Aquitaine near the Atlantic coast. The commune was created in 2001 by fusing Les Aubiers and Nueil-sur-Argent, which each had their own football stadium. Shortly afterwards, the new municipal council decided to merge the two communes’ football activities at the “Armand Tuzelet” site. Initially, the plan was to create a synthetic turf pitch for training and another pitch with natural grass.

Because it was assumed that athletic activities on the grounds would be intensified by the presence of the synthetic turf pitch, it later became necessary to adapt the building complex, especially the number of changing rooms, to meet increased demand and comply with the rules of the French Football Federation. The “Armand Tuzelet” site has new become the “Complexe sportif Tuzelet”. Alongside the synthetic turf pitch, it also includes a tennis court and a hall for basketball, handball and football, and another hall for table tennis.

The pitch in Nueil-les-Aubiers has been fitted with our Polytan LigaTurf Cross synthetic turf, which combines smooth and textured filaments. When combined, the two textile fibre types create a single hard-wearing surface, with a look and feel that is barely distinguishable from natural football turf and is used successfully in professional sport worldwide. Thanks to its textured filaments, LigaTurf Cross ensures low and easy maintenance, as well as greater infill stability and an increased turf volume. Our LigaTurf synthetic turf remains one of football turf systems with the most FIFA certifications.

We have now developed the LigaTurf even further: for example, our LigaTurf Cross R proves that football can be sustainable, even at the top level – thanks to its recycled material content. Another new milestone is our LigaTurf Cross GT zero, the world’s first carbon-neutral synthetic turf.

In Nueil-les-Aubiers, the players of the “Nueillaubiers” football club rely on the tried-and-tested quality of our LigaTurf Cross synthetic turf system, presumably while keeping a close eye on nearby Nantes, which is always interested in talent from the local area. After all, FC Nantes has won eight Ligue 1 titles. The club was once home to Didier Deschamps, who won the World Cup and European championships with the national team and later won the World Cup as coach of the French national team: an impressive feat that has otherwise only been achieved by Mário Zagallo (Brazil) and Franz Beckenbauer (Germany).
