El Madrigal is home to Villareal CF – its stadium has a capacity of 23,000 and was originally built in 1923. Since then there have been a number of renovations to the ground including the fact that the stadium is now an all-seater. The average attendance at the ground is usually approximately 14,500. Villarreal play around 30 miles from Valencia close to the town of Castellon de la Plana.
Bord na Móna again supplied our Irish peat moss fine grade for the re-construction projects of the Villareal football stadium in 2009.
With our long term partners in Spain, we have proven that the excellent high quality of Irish peat moss and its high level of lignin results in less breakdown, which ensures the best possible environment for root growth and plant development. The practice of harvesting from weed-free bogs not treated with pesticides ensures the playing surface grass will develop without problems.
