Dome Pitch Cover Installed At The Crown Oil Arena

3 March 2020

The Club has again invested in a dome-type pitch cover, which will remain in place until the end of the season, as we take every measure possible to ensure that no further games are postponed this season.

Due to the adverse conditions that have recently plagued the surface at the Crown Oil Arena, the decision has been taken to further protect the pitch with seven home matches remaining.

We are working closely with Sports and Stadia Ltd, paying special attention to fixtures with likely bad weather in order to protect the pitch.

The same covers were installed ahead of the matches against Newcastle United and Coventry City, which saw both games go ahead as scheduled.

With a major pitch renovation due to commence on May 4th, the covers should allow the Club to nurse the current pitch until then with no further postponements.
