Barikadimy Stadium lifted to a higher level with FieldTurf’s Optimum Coolplay system

The historical multi-purpose Barikadimy Stadium in Tamatave, Madagascar, has installed FieldTurf’s Optimum CoolPlay system. The stadium, which is under complete renovation, will soon be ready to receive national and international games on their new pitch. The installation of the Tarkett Sports pitch was decided by FIFA for the FIFA Goal Project.

With the Goal Project, FIFA wants to further boost the football development in Madagascar, while focusing on its specific needs. Thanks to this, the stadium in Tamatave will see a major transformation with their new installment.

CoolPlay offers the perfect solution in hot climates.
The innovative system provides a safe environment for athletes by reducing temperatures without any reduction in field performance, and proves to maintain durable. Combined with FieldTurf’s Optimum, which has become the surface of over 200 esteemed facilities, an excellent playing comfort and player safety is guaranteed.

The Barikadimy stadium, which is currently mostly used for football matches, hosts the home games of football club AS Fortior of the THB Champions League. It has a capacity of 20,000 spectators.
