Millenium Stadium Re-Turfing - Kestrel Contractors

Millenium Stadium Re-Turfing

Type of installation: Natural turf pitch laying

Location: Millenium Stadium, Cardiff

Kestrel re-turfed the prestigious Millennium Stadium football and rugby surface in Cardiff which was chosen to host the 2004 F.A. Cup Final between Manchester United FC and Millwall FC.


It was the first opportunity to use the company’s brand new BRL120, Kestrel’s state of the art turfing machine and it certainly didn’t disappoint!


Kestrel’s impressive turfing CV ensured they were in a position to negotiate the prestigious contract. Kestrel managed to turf the pitch in a mere three days and ensured it was playable for the show piece event.


Advantages of the newly designed BRL120 turfing machine

  • It can lay up to 360 m2 of turf per hour
  • 98% accurate without guidance boards
  • Reduces time wasted
  • Reduces costs
