Within the sports and recreational center Belvedere, it is necessary to develop a project, obtain the necessary permits, and expand the football field with artificial turf. The investment will cover all construction, as well as electrical and plumbing works. The dimensions of the new football field will be 100 x 64 meters with protective zones of 3 meters.

Within the newly defined boundaries of the field, it is necessary to replace the artificial turf. The plan involves replacing the existing artificial turf with a 25 mm thick shock-absorbing layer, filled with quartz sand and EPDM granules in green color. This system should fully comply with the FIFA Quality PRO standard.

The sprinkler system on the field needs to be operationalized, three floodlight poles need to be moved, and the existing floodlights need to be replaced with LED lighting. The facility should be fully equipped with sports equipment – goals, auxiliary goals, corner flags, reserve benches for players and referees on the southern side, protective padding around the entire field, and other necessary items.
