Virtually discover the pitches of OH Leuven during ESSMA’s Pitch Management e-Workshop
On Tuesday 6 October ESSMA will organise its virtual Pitch Management e-Workshop. Even though this year's edition will take place online, we will livestream the e-workshop from the pitches of OH Leuven. As we still want to offer the experience of standing on the pitch, you will have the opportunity to join a virtual pitch tour around the OH Leuven facilities.
What can you learn?
Pitch performance quality standards at LaLiga
In his role as Grounds Quality Manager, Pedro Fernández-Bolaños oversees the quality of all 42 LaLiga pitches. As their main contact person, he advises all LaLiga grounds teams on new techniques for maintaining the pitch or capturing relevant data, etc.
During the e-workshop, he will share insights on how LaLiga is helping their clubs in maintaining high-quality pitches and the benefits of their Greenkeeper app to support the clubs.
The use of pitch data and the evolution towards top-notch pitches at OH Leuven
The grounds team of OH Leuven will share their best practices and insights on how they transformed all their pitches to a top-notch level, partly thanks to the know-how of Premier League club Leicester City FC. Furthermore, they'll provide insights on which pitch data they gather and how they are using it on a daily basis.
