On Thursday, September 26, we had a successful opening of the new artificial football pitch at PSV Neuss. In total, around 1.3 million Euros have been invested in this merger and from now on not only will the 500 members of the PSV benefit, but also our approximately 1,000 students, will benefit from the modernization of the PSV facilities. Building the artificial turf pitch has put an emphasis on sustainability as the use of microplastics has deliberately been avoided.
