The Camp Nou has used a hybrid grass since this system was implemented in the 2016-17 season to reinforce the 100% natural grass. This system provides more uniform traction and stability of the pitch throughout the year, according to the experts.
The natural grass is selected from several nurseries throughout Europe, and it is transported to Barcelona in refrigerated trucks that travel during the day to proceed to the laying of the grass that same night with the aim of minimizing the stress of the operation and avoiding the hours maximum heat. This makes the implantation time of the grass longer, about 2,000 m2 / day, but ensures its ideal adaptation.
