How it works

Soccer clubs are regularly forced to cancel a match because of excessive rain, snow or frost. To avoid this problem, Dutchdome protects the field during a few hours or days before the beginning of the match with a semi-transparent pitch cover system. The light-weight cover is easy to install and remove. Through three openings in the cover, air is blown in with big fans, what makes the cover take a bulging shape and at the same time ventilates the lawn.
