Monte Carlo Louis II Stadium

In summer 2012, in preparation for the UEFA Supercup (Chelsea vs. Atlético Madrid) the pitch of the Louis II Stadium was finally converted to warm-season species (Tifway 419 hybrid bermudagrass). This helped the pitch to sail healthily through a warm Monte Carlo summer, with no use of pesticides and with a great saving in irrigation water. The pitch was perfect for the UEFA Supercup and both AS Monaco and Parcs et Sports have been fully satisfied with the end result and with the ease of maintenace associated with the use of a warm-season species for the French Riviera area.
