The Hereford Academy are proud the have one of the only 3G football pitches, and the first built 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.
