3G Footwear Requirements
The Hereford Academy are proud to be the only school with a 3G pitch in the county. Because of the special playing surface, only certain boots are allowed.
• ALLOWED: Standard football boots with round studs (moulded or screw-in studs without sharp edges). These can be bought quite reasonably in high street sports shops.
• NOT ALLOWED: Flat shoes including standard trainers as they will damage the surface over a sustained period.
• NOT ALLOWED: Boots with only chevron shaped moulds and blades are strictly prohibited as they will cause damage to the pitch over a sustained period. Using these type of boots on a 3G surface could also lead to an injury.
• ALLOWED BUT NOT RECOMMENDED: Astro trainers ARE allowed but are NOT recommended.
No spectators are allowed on the pitch. Spectators can watch from the designated spectators area.
