Clubs wanted for sensor trial

Two UK football clubs have the chance to take part in a free trial of a state-of-the-art sensor system that establishes various parameters regarding the soil condition.

To take part, grounds managers have to submit a case study as to how their stadium or training facility would benefit from the addition of the sensors within their maintenance routine. The most interesting applicants will be selected to trial a system and learn how they can increase efficiency by using a data-driven maintenance approach.

Managing Director for Bernhard and Company, Steven Nixon, said: “We want to hear from grounds managers and football training facility maintenance professionals in England, Scotland, and Wales, to find out why they believe they’d benefit from data-led decision processes using Soil Scout.

“The end of the football season marks the perfect time to begin turf renovations ahead of the following campaign. So, there’s no better moment to look for new ways to become more efficient in maintaining your turf. This is a great opportunity to be one of the first to trial this cutting-edge technology.”

Soil Scout provides underground wireless soil sensor and monitoring solution for agriculture, golf, and sports turf maintenance professionals.

To be in with a chance to trial a Soil Scout sensor system for free, football club representatives are required to submit a case detailing the reasons why their club would benefit from the enhanced data collection that comes with the Soil Scout sensor system. The deadline for submissions is 31st May 2024, and to submit an entry, please click here.

There will be two further sensor kits allocated to golf course managers as the summer season gets into full swing, enabling sporting venues to enhance their data collection and irrigation processes.
