After receiving half a million euros in investment, Motril has now opened its newest football pitch in Carchuna. The Mayor of Motril, Luisa García Chamorro, has applauded the hard work and effort that has gone into the renovation of this sports facility. The pitch has undergone a €488,585 renovation to improve its services.
The mayor has highlighted Motril’s efforts to economically support the creation and maintenance of sports infrastructure in the area. The objective is for “all of the population to enjoy the surrounding venues, and for these to be in perfect condition to suit citizen’s needs” says Chamorro. She has complimented the collaboration between the different administrations who have made this possible, the Junta de Andalucia, the Motril Town Hall and the local entity of Carchuna. Chamorro sees this football pitch as a new milestone in the wellbeing of Motril’s residents and sport fanatics.
The president of the local entity of Carchuna-Calahonda, Concepción Abarca, has confirmed that the renovations, and the installation of artificial grass on the football pitch, have elevated the sports facility to a “benchmark of quality in the Costa Tropical”. Abarca has highlighted the importance of promoting a healthy lifestyle and developing political actions which support sport in all its forms and disciplines.
The new pitch now boasts of high-quality grass which can accommodate profession matches, equalling its standard to those of a FIFA level. It has six different overhead sprinklers and a semi-buried cistern as part of its new irrigation system, which can water the pitch in 10 minutes. Light fixtures have also been improved with the instalment of LED lights, which simultaneously reduce energy costs and allow for high level competitions and training sessions.
