What is a FIFA Preferred Provider?

The FIFA Preferred Provider (FPP) initiative was introduced in 2009 in response to the increasing demand for higher quality, not only in the product itself but further in the installation process of football turf. The overall objective is to protect the interests of consumers when purchasing pitches while ensuring that the football turf pitches meet high requirements regarding quality, performance and safety.


To attain the qualification, the manufacturer also has to comply with FIFA’s
high standards in terms of:

Production process
Quality control system
Product quality
Installation and maintenance
knowledge and expertise

The Road to Becoming a FIFA Preferred
Provider is Tough.
