The FIFA Preferred Producer initiative offers producers the chance to be listed as recommended producers for the correct installation of a football turf pitch. Preferred Producers are experts in football turf and must have already proven their experience in implementing the Quality Concept as FIFA licensees over a number of years.
Preferred Producers have in-depth experience in civil engineering and project management as well as all other aspects of installation, covering everything from planning and design to installation and completion and regular maintenance and care.
Full service from start to finish
Preferred Producers are recommended as the first port of call for all purchasers –communities, associations or clubs – because they offer prospective football turf pitch operators the full range of services from start to finish.
Thanks to their excellent know-how, Preferred Producers take on the role of general contractor and take responsibility for all elements of the project, including a comprehensive quality guarantee. This makes the process simple and safe for the client, eliminating the need for complicated and time-consuming coordination among various service-providers. In the unlikely event that a problem should arise, the client can always contact FIFA for help.
FIFA licensees, meanwhile, undertake only to deliver and lay a high-quality product, and therefore take responsibility only for part of the installation and not the entire installation including checking the foundations. Accordingly, FIFA’s recommendation of the licensees only covers certification of the pitches and their quality.
