Artificial Turf Hockey Fields are constructed within 6-8 weeks conforming standards of International Hockey Federation (FIH).
Hockey Field Construction and Dimensions
A hockey pitch is the playing surface for the game of field hockey. Historically, the game was played on natural turf (grass) but nowadays is predominantly played on an artificial turf. The transition onto artificial pitches came during the 1970s and was made mandatory for major competitions in 1976.
Artificial grass hockey pitch is rectangular in shape. The longer perimeter edges are called the side line, the opposing shorter edges are referred toeback line and the portion of this between the goal posts is known as the goal line. The side line must measure 91.40 m (100 yd) and the back line should measure 55.00 m (60 yd). There must be a minimum run-off of 2 m at the sidelines and 3 m at the backlines which may be a different surface for the final metre. All line markings must be white and 75 millimetres wide. In each corner of the filed hockey pitch, a corner flag of no more than 300 mm square is attached to a post of height 1.20–1.50 m
