Talented junior players in the U9 to U19 teams and the women’s teams of FC Bayern Munich have been training at the new FC Bayern Campus since 1 August 2017. A 70 million euro state-of-the-art football academy has been built on the 30-hectare site of a former barracks within sight of the Allianz Arena. At the request of the German record-holders, sports surface systems from Polytan were installed over an area of around 22,000 square metres, with synthetic turf from Polytan being laid on two full-size pitches, two mini pitches and the fitness/technique/coordination area. In addition, Polytan synthetic surfaces were the ideal choice for the basketball court and the circular track: the basketball court was fitted out with the hard-wearing PolyPlay S all-round surface, while the Rekortan M professional sports surfacing system ensures that the running track is suitable for competitions. Both areas have been finished in classic brick red. When it came to the synthetic turf, FC Bayern Munich opted for the LigaTurf RS Pro II CoolPlus system with Infill Bionic Fibre infill granules, which is state-of-the-art technology in professional football.
